*Please note that due to COVID-19 some hours and locations have changed. Until further notice, any outreach hours normally conducted at Shalom Community Center have been shifted one block north to the White Rabbit parking lot at the corner of 1st and College in the mobile van. Wednesday hours are ONLY at Crawford in the mobile van. HIV/HCV testing has been suspended temporarily during outreach, due to the inability of staff to maintain 6 feet of social distance and privacy simultaneously. Both office and mobile outreach are being provided as 'window service only'. Please contact Harm Reduction staff if you have any questions about temporary changes to SSP services.
