Xavier Ruben Vargas III is a born and raised Arizonian. Through his own personal experience with substances, he has grown a drive for helping and supporting others in similar circumstances. He believes that everyone deserves support regardless of circumstance. Wishing he knew before, what he knows now; Xavier hopes to create positive change in his community by introducing more people to harm reduction education and improving the ability for those who use drugs to access resources that are much needed. Prior to his experience at SPW, Xavier has worked in many different professions throughout his life. Most notably he is an FAA certified aircraft Mechanic and previously worked in this field before moving to Northern Arizona. He still has a love for aviation and could talk about it for days.
