HIV North’s Outreach and Support Services Initiative is a comprehensive and coordinated network of services for the street involved individuals in the Grande Prairie region.  Day, evening, and weekend street outreach provides Harm Reduction supplies, disease transmission reduction education, program promotion, participant recruitment, risk reduction counseling, coordination into care, referrals into housing programs, and street-based supportive services when necessary.

LGBTQ Youth Drop In

Experienced and passionate youth workers may volunteer at our weekly youth drop in which focuses on building up local youth, many of whom identify as LGBTQ. A Child Welfare check is required for those working with youth.

Women’s Drop In

We provide a safe place for sex trade workers to come to access services and get off the streets for a time. We are always interested in having volunteers for the Drop In but specifically need more people who are willing to cook a meal for this event.
Note: You will need a Criminal Record Check.
