Hey there! I’m Drew, the founder of Out of Harm’s Way Okc. We are a small harm reduction organization that delivers sanitary use equipment and life saving aid to people in and around the Oklahoma City area. Most of us are active members of recovery, as such we have a unique ability to reach people with love and compassion rather than judgment and criticism.
Since opening our services a couple of months ago, we have been able to help hundreds of people and our kits are responsible for over 20 overdose reversals! We have also had a few participants who have gone through treatment and are in active recovery! Meeting people where they are at, rather than where you want them to be is a powerful approach…harm reduction works!
While we are growing and helping more and more people, keeping supplies on hand has been a difficult task. We are launching this fundraiser to help us pay for nonprofit status filing so we can begin applying for grants among other things to generate consistent cash flow.
We KNOW this mission works, and given the amount of participation we have received in such a short amount of time, we will be able to really give a helping hand to those in our community that have long been written off as “unreachable”. Please consider donating and also sharing this campaign with your friends and family…you never know who might need to hear about us!
Thank you and BIG LOVE from all of us to all of you!!!!
