New York Harm Reduction Educators
New York Harm Reduction Educators (NYHRE) is a non-profit organization devoted to promoting the health, safety and well-being of marginalized, low-income persons who use drugs, their loved ones and their communities. NYHRE recognizes the historical, structural, socio-economic and environmental inequalities that foster adverse outcomes among drug users, particularly those from communities of color. Vigorously advocating for social justice, we strive to redress these disparities by providing vital resources, tools and support that enhance quality of life and facilitate the prevention of diseases disproportionately affecting persons who use drugs, including HIV and viral hepatitis. To this end, we deliver integrated health and social services that promote physical, psychological, social and spiritual wellness. Utilizing a grass roots approach, we prioritize peer involvement in all aspects of our programming.
