Hello, my name is Sarah Kerr and I am a founding and current board member with Humboldt Area Center for Harm Reduction (HACHR).  Over the past seven years HACHR has worked tirelessly to overcome stigma and misinformation in order to provide outreach, support, services, and respect to unhoused individuals and people who use drugs.   I'm so very proud to be a part of HACHR.

We need YOUR help to continue our life saving work.  HACHR needs a vehicle to offer full scope services to community members, regardless of their location in the County.  

I am passionate about harm reduction and am constantly in awe of the amazing work HACHR staff and volunteer do to bring dignity, health, and love to people who are so often denied it.  Please join me in supporting HACHR to GET MOVING!  Donate generously today!

In 7 years, HACHR has traveled all over Humboldt County, to provide outreach, support, services, and respect to unhoused individuals and people who use drugs. We travel hundreds of miles each week--meeting our participants where they are at, literally--to provide sterile syringe exchange services, overdose prevention supplies and education, hepatitis C testing and linkage to treatment, care coordination, compassion, and respect for our marginalized neighbors in Humboldt County.  In 2020 alone, HACHR has played a part in reversing 145 overdoses, distributed over 2,400 naloxone kits and hundreds of hygiene and wound care kits,  provided hot food and cold weather supplies to our unhoused neighbors, and supported over 75 individuals in enrolling in medication-assisted treatment--the majority of whom we met on outreach across the county.

As COVID-19 continues to  push people who use drugs further out of stable housing and into the shadows, it is imperative that we continue to provide top-notch health and supportive care across Humboldt, and to do that, we need a mobile clinic.

A mobile clinic will allow HACHR staff to travel far and wide across remote and urban parts of Humboldt County, including hard-to-reach and marginalized communities, with everything they need to provide instant support and services: a space for HIV/HCV testing and meetings with case managers, enough storage for harm reduction supplies like syringes and naloxone, plumbing and electricity to store tests and supplies and charge tablets and participant devices, and a reliable engine that will keep us going for a hundred thousand miles and then some. 

Every dollar raised will go directly to getting HACHR more mobile--purchasing a van, transforming it into a mobile clinic, paying for parking and storage, and getting it registered and insured. Gifts are fully tax deductible.

If you support harm reduction in Humboldt County, please consider getting us on the road with a donation, and sharing this with your networks!  And watch this space--we'll be sharing updates and testimonials from our incredible HACHR community here. 

PS: Fundrazr includes a "tip" on every gift to support its platform that is 100% optional--if you would like to change or remove your tip, click on "change tip amount" on the right hand side when you are making your contribution.
