Volunteering your time with Victory Programs to help build harm reduction kits can directly support efforts aimed at keeping people healthy and mitigating the HIV outbreak happening in Boston.

Our Mobile Prevention Team distributes thousands of harm reduction kits, facilitates thousands of syringe exchanges, and provides the life-saving overdose reversal drug Naloxone to help keep our Boston community safe and healthy. This work has been proven to reduce HIV and Hepatitis C incidence by up to 50% and prevent loss from overdose.

Donating two hours of your time to build harm reduction kits can help ensure that our team can remain on the street, in shelters, or in our programs providing these life-saving interventions to those that need it most.

To volunteer, please reach out to [email protected].

We are thrilled to announce that the vaccine clinic operating in our Parish Hall is now open to all adults for walk-ins! Please share widely.

Clinic hours are Monday through Saturday, 9-4 at 10 Parish Street, Dorchester. The Meetinghouse is on the MBTA 15 & 17 bus routes; about a 15 min (uphill) walk from the MBTA Redline Fields Corner Station; and there is plentiful parking on site.

Free, interactive, virtual workshops! Bring your ideas to help shape the design of our future FOOD CO-OP store at 191 Bowdoin Street. About this Event Calling all Boston residents, Dorchester neighbors, Dorchester Food Co-op member-owners and folks who love cooperation, justice, and community-driven design: We invite you to the Community Design Planning 3-Part Series, facilitated by CoEverything. It's now time for all of us collectively to begin planning our new cooperative grocery store! In May, we hired CoEverything as our Design/Architect Team. The first step is called the "conceptual design" phase, and we need your ideas to help shape the experience you envision in shopping at the Co-op. The Dorchester Food Co-op is a grocery store that is owned by the community and the workers. We will lift up neighborhood voices to create a co-op that truly feels comfortable to our diverse and vibrant community. Let's build an innovative public space committed to racial, economic and worker justice, that will enhance the health and well being of our community. Cooperation is our approach. Justice is our goal! https://www.eventbrite.com/e/virtual-community-design-planning-3-part-series-tickets-109425095406
