We're Going Beyond Our Original Missions to transform lives through health & wellness.

  SYRINGE ACCESS

Access to sterile syringes has been proven to reduce the spread of HIV and Hepatitis C. In the BOOM!Health SEP program, individuals can anonymously exchange used syringes for unused sterile syringes. Individuals are screened and must meet program eligibility criteria in order to participate in the program.

SEP services are available to injection drug users in the drop in center and through mobile distribution units. The SEP team also provides community clean up and safe syringe disposal services.

Expanded Syringe Access Program (ESAP)
The BOOM!Health ESAP Distributes sterile syringes to injection drug users through community outreach and promotes ESAP to local health care facilities and pharmacies.

Peer-Delivered Syringe Exchange
Peer-Delivered Syringe Exchange program provides access to sterile syringes at no cost to injection drug users who do not have access to a nearby Syringe Exchange Program.

Single Residence Occupancy (SRO) Health Outreach
The BOOM!Health SRO Health Outreach team confronts homelessness and HIV/AIDS with critical home-delivered harm reduction services to homeless people living with HIV/AIDS who have been placed in SRO hotels for emergency shelter. Services include outreach, condoms and prevention materials, hygiene kits, education, counseling and medical triage.
