What we do

Our mission is to reduce harm.

Our mission is to reduce harm associated with active drug use and to lift up and support the intersectionality of poverty, poor access to health care and homelessness. Therefore, in addition to safe using supplies, we promote harm reduction and adequate safe supplies in many forms, in collaboration with other grassroots organizations. We fundraise for scholarships for recovery residences and advocate for policies that support overdose prevention and safe use sites. We believe that in order to grow and heal, we must rely on the voices of people who use drugs to ensure evidence based practices that are most appropriate for the demographic we serve.

The Church of Safe Injection is a Maine-based harm reduction nonprofit that fights for the health, rights, and dignity of people who use drugs (PWUD). We fight for the closure of all prisons and other tools of structural violence against poor and marginalized people.

here for LBGTQIA+ Mainers

We’re proud to have received a $7,500 grant from the Maine Community Foundation to initiate services for LGBTQIA+ people in Maine. With this grant we plan to introduce binder vouchers, trans and non-binary support groups, and hormone therapy supply programs.
