Strengthening our community through compassion


GHRC engages directly with grassroots advocacy, research, and direct services to those made vulnerable by drug use, sex work, overdose, gender, STIs, HIV, hepatitis, and other communicable diseases. We work to bring those individuals that engage in high-risk activities closer to prevention and health services, regardless of their choices, circumstances, or lifestyle, and all services are free of charge. GHRC utilizes a Harm Reduction model to serve our clients. 

The Harm Reduction philosophy is a non-judgmental approach that allows GHRC to meet individuals “where they are” so we can identify and reduce the harm associated with their situations, such as substance abuse, injection drug use, sex work, and other marginalizing conditions.

Using this approach we accept and work with people “as they are” which allows us to help people live healthier lives by tailoring specific risk-reduction plans based on an individual’s specific lifestyle-related (self-identified) risks and reasonable (self-set) goals.
