The Harm Reduction team does outreach in the Parkdale Community to engage with isolated individuals in rooming houses, drop-ins and other precarious housing situations. Our staff provide information about community resources, basic support and referrals to services at the health centre and within the community. Our outreach worker can also meet with clients at PCHC.
The Harm Reduction Program at PCHC also provides peer outreach to members of the Parkdale community. The goal of peer outreach is to engage with those in the community who may not access PCHC. Outreach workers provide injection and inhalation kits, condoms, and health information and other supplies. The peer outreach workers visit parks, community organizations, and the streets of Parkdale.
If you have questions about outreach times please call 416.537.0275, ext. 271.
