The Compassion Access Project is a mutual aid effort to increase access to medicinal herbs, self care items, and healthcare resources for people who hold historically marginalized identities. Our mission is to lift and prioritize community members by providing:
Access to high quality herbal medicine to support mental and physical health needs
Items and education to promote self care and mindful healing
Access to safe and respectful mental and physical health resources
We accomplish these goals through these efforts:
North Carolina Herbal Care Bag Program: Care bags prioritized for NC BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, & Neurodivergent community members in Durham, NC and surrounding areas
Care Bags for Drag Performers in the NC Piedmont Region
Compassion Access Project Pop Up Clinics in the NC Piedmont Region
** Coming Soon: Self Serve Community Apothecaries in Durham, NC**
The Compassion Access Project (originally Compassion Acupuncture Project) was founded by acupuncturist/herbalist Shea D Broussard in Durham, NC in April of 2019.
The Compassion Access Project is funded via community donations and project grants. All purchases from The Compassion Apothecary will directly support the ongoing efforts of The Compassion Access Project.
