Augusta Gribetz

Current Fellow

Augusta Gribetz is the Operations Manager at Charm City Care Connection (CCCC), a harm reduction drop-in center in East Baltimore that provides services to people with substance use disorders. In 2018, Augusta helped shift the organization from a health resource center to a harm reduction drop-in center where she developed CCCC’s first advisory board, a community-based syringe service program, and a daily hot lunch program. As the organization has grown, Augusta’s role has shifted to oversee all operations including, data collection and management of all direct service programs, grant administration, the development of leadership among participants, and the daily logistics of the center. 

Charm City Care Connection (CCCC) is a low-barrier, harm reduction-based drop-in center located in East Baltimore and provides comprehensive case management, safer drug use supplies, street-based outreach, a Housing First program, and drop-in services. Founded in 2009, CCCC uses a community-based perspective to create healthcare connections for people systematically denied access to care. All of the work is rooted in dignity, justice, and respect and centers members of affected communities in the planning and programming of the organization.
