Harm reduction

November Updates from Syringe Access Services

We are recruiting trans and non-binary folks to participate in a secondary syringe exchange program.

Volunteer Orientations 

We are pleased to share with you that we are at capacity for our new volunteer orientation taking place Saturday, November 6th from 2-4 pm at 1035 Market Street.

If you are interested in joining us in the future for trainings please sign up at Shiftboard.com. 

Volunteers at SAS play a vital role in supporting the community response to the overdose epidemic, providing health education and safer supplies to reduce the spread of HIV and Hepatitis C.

Community Secondary Exchange Program 

SAS currently has two programs that train folks who use drugs how to best serve their community and provide harm reduction supplies to those communities. In exchange for being in the program participants get paid and attend weekly trainings. 

Our gender-focused secondary syringe program, for folks that identify as trans or non-binary, is still actively recruiting. 

This program uplifts the work that many people who use drugs already do–providing their own communities with resources, harm reduction supplies, and health education. If you know of anyone who identifies as being trans or non-binary and is interested, please reach out to azimmer@sfaf.org.
