“Offering low threshold, low barrier access to treatment, clinical care and harm reduction services is crucial,” said Deirdre Calvert, Director of DPH’s Bureau of Substance Addiction Services. “These vans will provide additional access and help us to connect with individuals we’ve been unable to reach before.”

Other agencies named in the grant are Boston Health Care for the Homeless in Boston, Mass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester, and Stanley Street Treatment and Resources in New Bedford. The Kraft Family Foundation has donated the vans in Worcester and Springfield.
