Open Aid Alliance

Open Aid Alliance works with the unique potential of each individual to overcome stigma as they seek greater health.

Services & Support

We will continue our modified hours through the end of July with most staff working remotely most of the time.  We can meet with people outside, deliver supplies to your home or send them through the mail.  We want to keep our staff and clients as safe as possible as we watch the data during the reopening phases.  We’re open to new ideas about delivering services to you.  If you have suggestions about how that could look, please fill out the form below and send us your ideas.  If you have any questions, you may email [email protected].
