Stonewall Walk-In Activity Schedule


Below is Stonewall’s Self-Directed Program Schedule.  Each week we offer a variety of walk in groups, book clubs, harm reduction education opportunities, syringe access, individual counseling, and wellness services like meditation, massage and acupuncture.

No paperwork, no intake, no waits. We look forward to meeting you.

If we aren’t the right fit we can help you find support that is.
