Windham Harm Reduction Coalition, Inc.

Grant Awarded: $5,355

Windham Harm Reduction Coalition, Inc. (WHRC) was founded in 2009 to provide HIV and drug overdose prevention services to individuals and families affected by substance abuse in Connecticut’s Windham and Tolland counties.

It also engages in Naloxone distribution, LGBTQ youth workshops, housing referrals, and overdose prevention training. The nonprofit, however, has been sorely in need of an identity program that can be applied across print and web media to promote the program and attract funding. The Ideas that Matter grant will go toward creating a new identity for display on future promotional materials.
