Our mission is to improve the quality of life for all members of our community through gold standards in harm reduction, emphasizing local action with national impact.
Prairie Harm Reduction serves individuals who are at risk and affected by HIV and Hepatitis C by removing barriers to services and pursuing innovative and evidence-based outcomes. PHR provides members of the community a safe environment to drop-in with outreach support (Support Services and Family Support Programs). PHR also provides educational programs and resources on several topics including, but not limited to, HIV, HCV, Harm Reduction, service navigation and engaging with people who use drugs, and provides Naloxone training to anyone. In addition, PHR has Needle Patrollers who pick-up needles throughout Pleasant Hill, Riversdale, and Mayfair neighbourhoods.
In October 2019, Prairie Harm Reduction was proud to announce that Saskatchewan’s first Safe Consumption Site would open. The SCS provides a safe and judgment free environment for individuals to consume their substances. The PHR team continues to work tirelessly to ensure that the site remains open and available to those who need a safe place to go, all in absence of provincial funding.

2021 Satisfaction Survey
