Washington Heights Corner Project * 1
    #24469093 - 07/09/17 02:14 AM (3 years, 9 months ago)

Just discovered this recently and think its something I would be interested to check out and possibly volunteer at, things like this are very good for bringing harm reduction services to the community.


Washington Heights CORNER Project’s (WHCP) mission is to significantly improve the health and quality of life of people who use drugs. To help overcome stigma and systemic barriers to care, we provide support and services in an empowering and non- judgmental environment and apply a participant-driven harm reduction approach. We expand access to clean syringes through street-based outreach, and provide resources, advocacy, and a broad range of educational, health and referral services that reduce risks associated with drug use, including HIV, viral hepatitis and overdose.

The Washington Heights CORNER Project, Community Outreach and Resources, Needle Exchange and Harm Reduction (WHCP), was founded in 2005 as a activist-run street-based educational outreach and syringe access endeavor aimed at reducing the spread of blood-borne diseases among intravenous drug users in the Washington Heights homeless community. WHCP began outreach efforts two nights a week near the George Washington Bridge Port Authority Bus Terminal, a location frequented by injection drug users, sex workers, and other community members engaging in high-risk behaviors. Harm reduction supplies and educational literature were provided out of a nylon knapsack and service included mental health support, motivational interviewing and wellness and recovery counseling. The severity of commonplace high-risk behavior paired with participants’ enthusiastic utilization of outreach services, made it obvious that swift organizational capacity building would be needed to expand hours and service scope and actively work with Community Based Organizations, local, and state institutions to connect participants with appropriate service and treatment referrals.
