Greetings and Welcome to GHRC’s website.
On behalf of GHRC staff, board of directors and our dedicated partners and volunteers over the years, I invite you to join our efforts in improving lives of our patients and clients by promoting health and dignity and reducing the impact of HIV/AIDS, viral hepatitis, STIs, and substance use within vulnerable communities through practice of harm reduction strategies.
Through our website, you will discover our commitment to communities in which we serve. Our focus then and now is to end health disparities and working proactively with our community members to find the best solutions to ensure the highest standard of health among the communities we serve.
These are exciting times for GHRC as we continuously grow, develop new programs, identify new partners, and connect with more community members. I hope you will get a sense of our passion, expertise, reliability, and innovative programs as you browse through this website.
