Description of the event

Looking for a great way to wind down on a Friday evening and contribute to a great cause at the same time?

El Rio will donate ALL bar proceeds from 4:00 – 6:00, including non-alcoholic drinks and snacks. The more money we raise – the more harm reduction we can bring to the community! Come join us!

This fall, The Center for Harm Reduction Therapy (CHRT) is going to launch a mobile mental health team that will take counseling services to wherever youth and young adults are known to congregate – homeless encampments,  shelters, drop-in centers, and transitional and permanent housing programs where some young people need onsite mental health treatment to maintain their housing.

Our community programs are rooted in partnerships with eight community-based organizations and open access medical clinics (CBO’s) that offer low-threshold services.  CHRT needs to expand its reach to people who don’t even make it to these programs.

By engaging youth and young adults, and meeting them where they’re at, CHRT can continue to provide substance use and mental health treatment to a diverse population, and expand to reach the hardest-to-reach. But only with your help.

Your support will help us purchase:

  • A van and its conversion to a mobile counseling office ($80,000)
  • Equipment such as iPads that allow onsite (mobile) access to information and medical notes. ($10,000)
  • Medical/first aid equipment and supplies, food and warm drinks, blankets and cushions, supplies of dry clothing, overdose prevention supplies ($10,000)
  • If you can’t make it to the event, please consider making a donation:
