Programs

Mobile Outreach and Education
HIPS provides safer sex materials, syringe access, counseling, and support to street-based workers Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights from 11pm to 5 am.

Peer Education
We train former or current sex workers to educate their peers on safety and HIV.  Our Peer Educators extend HIPS programs into areas traditional health programs can’t reach.

Client Advocacy
HIPS provides basic services, such as helping to obtain an ID card or finding emergency shelter.

Community Education
HIPS trains medical and social service providers to appropriately address the needs of sex workers and address barriers sex workers face in accessing services.
