Community Outreach/Overdose Prevention Project
We are a small non profit called Operation in My Back Yard. We do outreach in Kensington providing healthy meals, hygiene kits, wound care, overdose reversal drugs and training, safe injection education, substance abuse treatment referrals, financial assistance with sober living costs and harm reduction education. On a typical outreach day, we serve between 100-200 meals and distribute around 50 doses of overdose reversal drugs to individuals who are homeless and use drugs.
