United Against Opioid Abuse
Indiana United Ways is launching a three year AmeriCorps project for the Healthy Futures: Reducing and/or Preventing Prescription Drug and Opioid Abuse opportunity. United Ways fight for the health, education and financial stability of every person in every community. United Ways in Indiana are new to the issue of the opioid epidemic, but they are known for engaging communities and mobilizing resources to fight for basic human needs. United Against Opioid Abuse will utilize AmeriCorps members to assist United Ways and other community organizations in: a) conducting a landscape scan about how their community is experiencing the opioid problem, b) developing an asset map to help leaders look at community resources systemically, and c) engaging the community as part of the solution. This work will support existing coalitions currently working on prevention and response to opioid abuse. Participating United Ways include the following counties: Howard (Kokomo), Sullivan and Vigo (Terre Haute), and Vanderburgh (Evansville).These are half-time positions with an option to renew.
