AIDS Saskatoon is a community-based harm reduction organization that is dedicated to providing support, prevention, and education services for people living with, affected by, and vulnerable to HIV and Hepatitis C. We are committed to a holistic, collaborative and inclusive approach in the work that we do with individuals, organizations, and communities. Our services meet people where they are at.
At AIDS Saskatoon, we value safety and believe that all people have the right to participate in a community of mutual respect, compassion, and dignity. We understand individual and community safety as encompassing a dynamic blend of physical, emotional, and spiritual security. We value Harm Reduction and we accept that chaos is part of our world, and choose to work to minimize its harmful effects rather than ignore or condemn them. We believe in the nonjudgmental, non-coercive provision of services and resources to people and communities. AIDS Saskatoon and 601 Outreach currently run a drop-in centre where people can come use the space freely and have access to laundry facilities, a computer with internet access, hot meals from Monday to Friday, a needle exchange, a family support program, support services, educational opportunities and prevention workshops, housing support, and much more.
