  •  Faith in Harm Reduction:  Faith in Harm Reduction is the only program in the country dedicated to building capacity and mobilizing community at the intersection of harm reduction and faith-based organizing. Born from conversations with communities of faith, harm reduction organizations, and unions of people who use drugs throughout the United States, Faith in Harm Reduction fills a unique role as connector, community mobilizer, and capacity builder, fostering innovative-and previously untapped-cross-sector collaborations to expand and strengthen harm reduction in principle, practice, and policy. Faith in Harm Reduction fosters opportunities for the co-creation of spiritual community and relationship building in partnership with people who use drugs and other harm reduction community leaders.

  • Harm Reduction Works: HRW in response to the need for a harm reduction based alternative to abstinence only self-help/mutual aid groups. This is  NOT in opposition to abstinence only groups. Harm Reduction Works-HRW is really for anyone who wants to know more about harm reduction and how it might help, for any reason regardless of their using or drinking history. This includes people with long term abstinence based recovery who actively participate in other groups such as 12 step. We say this explicitly because the typical narrative mistakenly places harm reduction in opposition to abstinence. 

  • Savage Sisters: Savage Sisters provides the Philadelphia community with resources for those living with or affected by substance use disorder.

Additionally, Savage provides a safe, structured, trauma-informed and pro-social living environment for people recovering from substance use disorder where they can safely recreate their lives.
