Wound Care on the Go
The SOAR Initiative
Support for The SOAR Initiative will help purchase wound care kits for outreach workers.
Thanks to you and other generous donors, The SOAR (Safety, Outreach, Autonomy, Respect) Initiative will be able to purchase wound care kits for outreach workers.
The SOAR Initiative works with government agencies, nonprofits, local activists, and communities throughout Ohio to implement innovative harm reduction strategies and to advocate for policies that save lives and prevent drug overdoses. Individuals who are actively using drugs often have wounds or infections due to injection drug use, lack of access to clean supplies, or poor hygiene. Equipping outreach workers with wound care kits will allow them to provide immediate support, educate patients about proper wound care techniques, promote hygiene practices, and encourage early intervention.
Thank you for helping The SOAR Initiative equip outreach workers with the necessary supplies to help those in need.
We are Better Together!
"Providing wound care quickly is more crucial than ever. Stigmatized and underinsured populations like people who use drugs are less likely to receive emergency medical care, and the earlier that wounds are treated, the better we can prevent the crisis from escalating to the point where amputation becomes a necessity."
—Pranav Padmanabhan, Executive Board Member
Build up powerful, healthy communities of people who use drugs by implementing innovative harm reduction strategies that advance connection through technology and advocating for policies that promote a safe supply.
