About us

The Lower East Side Harm Reduction Center is a culturally diverse, community based, non-profit organization whose mission is to reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS and drug-related harm among injection drug users and the community. Using a harm reduction philosophy, the center provides programs that are based on the non-judgmental acceptance of drug users, evidence-based health science, and human rights. We accomplish this goal by offering practical strategies ranging from safer use to abstinence. In this supportive environment, we provide safe injection equipment, information on HIV/AIDS, hepatitis B and C, risk-reduction strategies, and safer sex practices. Ultimately, we aim to advance individual and collective strength as well as enhance the long-term well-being of drug users and the community.
