What we do

NYHRE fights the stigmas associated with drug use and sex work every day. Our cornerstone services – syringe exchange, education and outreach – are central to our mission. And our street-side delivery model brings NYHRE’s services to sites in East Harlem and the South Bronx every day. We go where we are needed!

Our Programs and Services focus on three key areas: advocacy, outreach and education, and holistic health. 

NYHRE recognizes the multicultural diversity of the communities it serves, and provides its services and materials in culturally appropriate ways. Our staff is multilingual, ensuring that our constituents can discuss their situations and communicate their problems with people who will fully understand them.

Through the programs and services we offer, NYHRE helps put drug users and sex workers on a pathway to self-recovery.
