Our goal is to reduce or eliminate barriers to harm reduction services for people living in rural areas. . Due to the size of the region served, The HNB Van will only be available in certain regions on certain day.
Due to the current Covid 19 emergency, we are practicing physical distancing and so will deliver pre-packaged harm reduction gear with no-contact dropoff.
