NightReach provides snacks, clothing, harm reduction supplies (including safer sex supplies), support, and referrals. Our team is dedicated and passionate about what they do and we are are so fortunate to be able to offer this service in our community.

A big thank you to all of the front-line staff out there on a daily continuing to help people. We see you. We appreciate you.

Many may not understand the need for PPE as it relates to overdose response but it is a real necessity. In fact, various PPE is really a necessity for a lot of the work we do including first aid, outreach and all such things. Without it we would not be able to operate. It is with gratitude that we received a donation from Cloverdale Paint today that includes N95 masks and Tychem coveralls so we can continue to keep staff and clients safe...and alive. Thank you!
