Our Mission:

Reduce harm.

Northern Valley Harm Reduction Coalition (NVHRC) is a community led effort committed to reducing harm and providing evidence-based education, advocacy, and direct services to all community members within Butte and the surrounding counties. NVHRC recognizes that to implement holistic and effective change, we must reach our community members with a client-centered approach.



NVHRC provides FREE NALOXONE (Narcan) with a short (5- 15 min.) one-on-one and group trainings on how to use this life saving medication to reverse an opioid overdose.

Volunteer opportunities

We’re a group of dedicated community members who are helping saving lives on the side of our regular jobs. NVHRC was founded in July 2018 by a group of about 20 passionate community members who wanted to bring harm reduction to Butte County. We have a need for a licensed nurse, PA, or doctor to help provide first aid and abscess care to our friends who are unhoused in Butte County during our street outreach. Join us!
