Harm Reduction Services

Support, not stigma

Using a non-judgmental approach, we welcome community members on a walk-in basis to our office. We offer harm reduction supplies, education, and consultation.

Hours of operation are Monday – Thursday, 12:30 PM to 5:30 PM.

Our harm reduction staff will be available to greet you, provide referrals as needed, and support a positive experience while you’re onsite!

Community Outreach

Let us meet you where you are!

Our Prevention & Outreach team members develop partnerships and visit local organizations to provide onsite rapid hepatitis C testing and training in viral hepatitis causes, treatments, and prevention. We also provide street-based outreach to encampments across Seattle.
