The AIDS Network is committed to respond to the COVID 19 public health emergency while continuing to prioritize the needs of the people we help. Due to the temporary closure of our office, we are taking steps to ensure we can continue to provide crucial harm reduction services to as many people as we can. Thanks to the dedicated work of our team and in collaboration with our amazing partners at Hamilton Public Health Services we have been able to extend the hours of service for The Van.
The Van is a mobile harm reduction site, people can call or text 905-317-9966 to arrange for it to meet them anywhere in Hamilton to distribute new harm reduction gear, retrieve and safely dispose of used harm reduction gear, and distribute naloxone kits.
The Van’s new operating schedule during this office closure will be
Monday Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday: 11:00am – 3:00pm
Thursday: 11:30am – 3:00pm
Regular evening service (7:00pm – 11:00pm, 7 nights a week) will also continue during this time.
