The Bexar Area Harm Reduction Coalition (BAHRC) is dedicated to providing voluntary health intervention for active intravenous drug users (IDU's).
The interventions will reduce HIV and Hepatitis infections among IDU's and those persons with whom they interact.
The goal of the intervention is to protect human life and to lower the soaring cost of health services in the community.
Volunteer your energy, talents, and resources to bring inspiration and hope to those who need it.
