HIPS promotes the health, rights, and dignity of individuals and communities impacted by sexual exchange and/or drug use due to choice, coercion, or circumstance. HIPS provides compassionate harm reduction services, advocacy, and community engagement that is respectful, non-judgmental, and affirms and honors individual power and agency.
We believe that those engaged in sex work, sex trade, and drug use should be able to live healthy, self-determined, and self-sufficient lives free from stigma, violence, criminalization or oppression. We will achieve this through engaging sex workers, drug users and our communities in challenging structural barriers to health, safety, and prosperity.
With our new Center for Health and Achievement our services have expanded! We always offer syringe exchange, both through our drop in center or via delivery on our outreach van, condom distribution, access to overdose prevention supplies, and linkage to HIPS full menu of support services. Clients can come to our drop in center Monday - Friday for showers and laundry and access to our clothing closet. For an up to date list of the services we offer click here.
