Project Wound Care
Save Our Families provides free wound care kits to the members of our communities. Open wounds and abscesses can lead to serious infections or worse. Our goal is to reduce the harm associated with wounds.
What is Wound Care?
Wound Care is a part of Harm Reduction. It’s important to factor in the health hazards of intravenous substance use. Long-term use of needles and substances can cause abscesses or Cellulitis resulting in an open wound. Keeping the wound drained, cleaned, and properly bandaged is important for healing.
As a part of Save Our Families’ commitment to transparency, we’ve included a periodically updated counter with accurate data. This data reflects how many wound care kits we’ve distributed, and the total of items used to create the kits.
