Healthy Living

In a perfect world, everyone is fed, housed & healthy.

Everybody deserves ACCESS TO HEALTH RESOURCES

Referrals

Our team of Homelessness Prevention works can assist clients by making connections and referrals to other health and support services like mental health supports, community health centres, financial and legal services.

Streetworks

StreetWorks is a harm reduction program providing safer injection and inhalation supplies to individuals in the Niagara region. Harm reduction is an important aspect of the treatment continuum and aims to empower and respect a person’s right to self-determination. SteetWorks provides Project SHARE with harm reduction supplies that can be distributed to our clients. Project SHARE staff are also trained on how to inject Naloxone which can temporarily reverse the effects of an opioid overdose.

Eyeglass support

Project Share has a partnership with Walmart to assist clients who are in need of eyeglasses. Clients must not have any other assistance available to them and have a recent prescription. Once the client has paid for half of the cost for basic glasses, Project SHARE will pay for the remaining portion.

Emergency prescription funding

A partnership with local pharmacies assists clients with emergency prescription expenses once per year. Painkillers and narcotics are excluded.

For further information call 905-357-5121 Ext. 225.
