Mobile Outreach Van

SWAN’s Mobile Outreach Van distributes harm reduction and safer use supplies to people in the Greater New Haven area, free of charge.

SWAN’s commitment to harm reduction means we try to meet people’s most pressing needs without standing in judgment of their choices. The support and supplies you receive are entirely up to you.

The outreach team provides referrals to partner organizations that provide support with housing, food, clothes, medical care, mental health care, substance abuse treatment, legal advocacy, re-entry support, LGBTQIA+ support, and immigration support.

We are a program of the Connecticut Harm Reduction Alliance and part of CTHRA’s statewide harm reduction mission.
