OHS issues RFP for harm reduction education in shelters

In collaboration with harm reduction partners and advocates, the Office of Homeless Services is seeking a 501 (c) 3 organization to provide harm reduction education and training for homeless shelter service providers.

The successful applicant will provide information about the needs, goals, and strengths of people with substance use disorders, mental health conditions and those experiencing homelessness through a social justice, trauma informed, empowerment, and participant autonomy lens.

Harm reduction content will include principles of community accountability: how participants interact with each other, how they interact with the programs, and how they interact with the community outside of the shelter.

Proposals must integrate harm reduction and recovery principles.

Funding: Up to $35,000.
