We've bought the van! Thank you, thank you!
Now, for additional funding for the retrofit.
"The van helps pick up the slack in the parts of my life
that have fallen apart"
Our Night Outreach Van has put in six big years of bringing support, food, harm reduction, clothing and other supplies directly to our clients. We've served on average 20 people each day during this time—that's 7300 times we've connected with folks where they are at...literally. We are the only seven-nights-a-week night outreach in Victoria.
Now, the van is starting to fall apart. Please help us not only continue to provide vital care, but improve and expand it.
"The van means life, food, clothes, supplies. Warmth, hygiene, and safety."
Peers Victoria, founded in 1995, is a multi-service agency established for, by, and with sex workers. Peers provides outreach and drop-in harm reduction, support services, education and employment training for current and former sex workers.
What the current van delivers:
➔ Harm reduction supplies
➔ Messages from health and housing supports
➔ Camping gear
➔ Contraception and other sexual health equipment
➔ A safe presence in vulnerable area
➔ Cold food and hot/cold beverages
➔ Mental Health Support
What the new van will also provide:
➔ A designated area for privacy to support increased STBBI testing, counselling, referrals and other support
➔ Functional fridge, stovetop and microwave
➔ Reliability for all-weather operation
➔ Increase client capacity by 20%
➔ 40% increase in storage capacity
➔ Multiple van access points for service
(one person can be in the private area while others pick up food, rigs, etc.)
