People who are homeless and use substances have always been at great risk of dying from an overdose while staying in shelters. The Integrated Prevention and Harm Reduction Initiative (iPHARE) seeks to change that. Together with our community partners and the City of Toronto, we place peer harm reduction teams in shelters to prevent overdoses, and work with shelter staff, service providers, and residents themselves, to provide harm reduction education and supplies. Our focus at The Neighbourhood Group is to recruit, train, and hire Peer Harm Reduction Workers for the iPHARE teams.
