Our Executive Director, Brandie Wilson, was awarded a Hero award from the Red Cross for our work with People Who Use Drugs. The Red Cross describes recipients of the Hero award as those who, “have saved lives, made significant, positive differences in their communities in the areas of emergency response, disaster preparedness, and prevention, or exemplified the Red Cross mission in some way.”
We are proud of the work we do in our community and the people who have put in the hard work to change their own lives. Recovery means something different to everyone and it’s through Harm Reduction that we are able to engage with and hear people who many times have not had their voices heard.
It is through connection, understanding and support that people take charge of their own health and wellness.
Thank you Red Cross for acknowledging our dedication and work!
