A documentary about harm reduction, love & art

What really happens at a needle exchange? This art-filled documentary goes behind the scenes at a syringe service program to look at the very misunderstood world of people who use drugs.

We Believe

Access to compassionate, accurate, high-quality healthcare should be available to everyone regardless of income, age, race, gender, sexual orientation or immigration status. Tapestry provides safe spaces in all four counties of Western Mass where anyone can receive the care they need without fear of judgement or stigma. We’ve been committed to providing full access to medical information for over 50 years, and these programs are critical for community health and well-being.

What people say

WIC Participant

My son used to be a picky eater, but since I have been coming to WIC, I have learned how to introduce new foods, like whole grains into his diet.

I feel like he is eating healthier now.

Harm Reduction Participant

I have saved 15 people from death by reversing an overdose with Narcan I got from Tapestry.

Sexual Health Client

I went to Tapestry on my own at 17 to get my first pelvic exam and discuss birth control before I started having sex. As a young girl without a mother, Tapestry made me feel safe.
