What we are providing: A wide range of sizes of syringes and needles for injecting hormones, as well as sharps containers and injection supplies.
Where: Our new headquarters on 1925 Ailor Avenue in Knoxville.
When: This service is available NOW! Why: We have received requests from members of the transgender community who have shared the challenges they’ve faced obtaining hormone therapy supplies. Common obstacles include cost, access, and even provider discrimination. As part of our mission, we strive to fulfill unmet needs of the populations we serve, and took steps to add this service to our Harm Reduction program.How to access these supplies: There is no cost, this is a completely FREE service. Interested individuals can call or text (865) 208-7356 with questions, or come to our Syringe Service Exchange Mondays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm.
