Harm Reduction Supplies for Access HOPE; Harm Reduction, Overdose, Prevention, Education. Anonymous Cape Wide Mobile Outreach. Meeting people where they are at with Free Narcan Harm Reduction Supplies and Peer Support
Access HOPE; Harm Reduction, Overdose, Prevention, Education. We are a community-based mobile, outreach program that advocates for People who Use Drugs. Providing life saving Harm Reduction Tools. Tools That Stem the acquisition and transmission of HIV, HCV, Soft Tissue Infections and Accidental Overdose Deaths. Providing a safe space to Connect without stigma or agenda.
We are funded through Grants and Donations. We recently lost a grant to a large ASO and their partners. This impacting the community that is currently accessing services with us. A fragile growing demographic that is often logistically hard to reach and struggles to access the public health care clinics and ASO’s
Over the last 20 years Kim Powers Founder of Access HOPE has built and cultivated connections with people who use drugs, sex workers, community Stakeholders, their loved ones and families across the Cape. She currently see’s 60-75 participants weekly and has Peer Support Volunteers In peek locations. She distributes 100 plus Narcan Kits per week and receives multiple Overdose Reversal Reports from Participants. Participants who have been educated and used the Narcan she supplies to save a partner, friend, family member or stranger. She refers folks to MAT, Treatment, Sexual Health, Pep, PReP, HIV testing, support and treatment, HCV Treatment, Wound Care and Grief Support.
We are a mobile outreach, on-demand harm reduction program that covers P-town to the Bridges, focusing on specific locations on certain days of the week. Including Homeless encampments and the unstably housed.
Literally meeting folks where they are at. It’s all anonymous and free.
We offer Free Harm Reduction Supplies; Narcan kits, both .4mg viles for IM and 4mg nasal spray. Sterile Syringes, multiple sizes including syringes for Hormone Replacement, Alcohol Swabs, Sterile Water, Ties, Cookers, Bleach Kits, Personal Sharps Containers, Wound Care Supplies, Condoms, Sustainable Snacks, Water, Outdoor Gear, Hygiene Supplies. Same Day or next Business day referrals for Medication Assisted Treatment. Peer Support and Safe Syringe Retrieval.
As with Most Harm Reduction Programs We are funded thru grants and donations and unfortunately just lost a significant source of funding for reasons that have nothing to do with Overdose Deaths or Helping people who use drugs.
People who know me and my lifelong commitment to Harm Reduction know that I won’t give up, I won’t stop fighting for the rights of people who use drugs.
We are in desperate need of help to purchase Narcan and supplies. The number of people asking for services has increased beyond anything we could have imagined.
