How do you incorporate Harm Reduction principles & practices?

In addition to relaying information about emergency resources (shelters, treatment centers, health care facilities, advocacy centers, and other critical care resources), we attempt to supply needed and requested items, which can include: blankets, socks, sleeping bags, camping gear, warm clothing, rain gear, food, hygiene and first aid supplies (bandages, medications, vitamins, and AIDS and Hepatitis-C prevention supplies)
