North Carolina Harm Reduction Coalition (NCHRC)gets work done. They reduce the incidence of Overdose, HIV, Hepatitis and STDs in North Carolina by working with the most vulnerable people, drug users, sex workers and people of transgender experience. They meet people where they are at and provide people with life saving services and save tax payer money by reducing disease transfer and overdose costs. NCHRC also participates in advocacy for more sane approaches to reducing HIV and Hepatitis incidence in North Carolina. This small non-profit does a lot of work and has sound fiscal and administrative practices.
