Strengthening our community through compassion



On behalf of the Atlanta Harm Reduction Coalition, Inc (AHRC), Greetings and Welcome to AHRC’s website.

On behalf of AHRC staff, board of directors and our dedicated partners and volunteers over the years, I invite you to join our efforts in improving lives of our patients and clients by promoting health and dignity and reducing the impact of HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis C, and STI within vulnerable communities through practice of harm reduction strategies.

Through our website, you will discover our commitment to communities in which we serve. Our focus then and now is to end health disparities and working proactively with our community members to find the best solutions to ensure the highest standard of health among the communities we serve.

These are exciting times for AHRC as we continuously grow, develop new programs, identify new partners, and connect with more community members. I hope you will get a sense of our passion, expertise, reliability, and innovative programs as you browse through this website.
