How You Can Help

Success! Message received.

QCHR could use plenty of help!
If you are a person who uses drugs, a person who formerly used drugs, have other life experience with sex work, incarceration, or homelessness and are service interested in the work we do, contact us!

If you are a doctor or nurse that would like to get involved--we need volunteers with your credentials.   Reach out to us if you'd like to help!

Volunteer Mailing List

We will contact you once volunteer oppurtunities come up!

We appreciate your interest and would love to hear from you!


State and federal dollars do not cover the cost of syringes or Naloxone. QCHR is grateful for any monetary and supply contributions. $5 help us provide sterile equipment to those we serve!

There are multiple ways to get involved and support our program. We look forward to hearing from you!
