Support and resources for partners

Technical assistance

We know that every organization is unique, and so is every community.

Our team has decades of experience on the front lines of harm reduction, and we’re ready to support you in creating or expanding a harm reduction program that is both achievable for your organization and impactful for your community. Whether you’re in rural Oregon, a tribal community or an urban area, we’re here for you.

Save Lives Oregon Clearinghouse

The Save Lives Oregon Clearinghouse provides life-saving supplies at no cost to partner organizations that qualify. As part of our technical assistance offerings, we also provide training on how to make these resources available to people who use drugs in your community.

Supplies may include:

  • Overdose prevention supplies such as naloxone
  • Wound care supplies
  • Safer use supplies for people who use drugs
  • Personal sharps containers

Communications toolkit

Harm reduction is proven to save lives and benefit people and communities, but some people may have questions about what it is and how it helps. The Save Lives Oregon communications toolkit provides our partners with resources and tools to build support and understanding for harm reduction within your community and organization.
