Hauʻoli Lā Hānau, HHHRC!

On July 1, 2018, Life Foundation and The CHOW Project merged to become Hawaiʻi Health & Harm Reduction Center. This year as we celebrate our 5th birthday and honor the 40th anniversary of the birth of our organization through Life Foundation, we are grateful to all of those who have supported us along the way.

The past five years have taught us so much. One of the most valuable things we’ve learned so far is how to navigate change. We have grown from 40 employees to over 90, responded to the second major public health crisis of our generation with an expansion of our clinic and street medicine program, and continue to strengthen and develop our programs and services to meet the needs of our community.

Among these are our growing behavioral health department, outreach and support for people experiencing houselessness, expanded sexual health services, enhanced drug user health and an overdose prevention program, a peer-led transgender support project, intensive case management for those with criminal justice involvement, and a more comprehensive HIV program that provides services for the whole person.

We have come so far and yet have so much more to do. Thank you for walking alongside us as we work to reduce harm, promote health, create wellness, and fight stigma in Hawaiʻi and the Pacific. We couldn’t do this work without you.
