Virginia Harm Reduction Coalition

Who we are

Virginia Harm Reduction Coalition (VHRC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, peer-run organization whose mission is to improve the health of the drug-using community we serve by advocating for, developing, and implementing evidence-based solutions to address the adverse effects of drug use.

What we do

We address health inequities faced by people who use drugs (PWUD) by providing safer-use supplies and social services to marginalized populations, advocating for health policies that address their specific needs, and collaborating with other agencies to deliver public health services.

Why and how we do it

No one in our community is disposable. Traditional policies and approaches to substance use have isolated, stigmatized, and criminalized people we love. The result is poorer health outcomes for our community and our country. It’s time for a new approach that places value on the individual and focuses on support instead of punishment.
