What is the Hope Partnership Project?
The Hope Partnership Project is a collaboration of federal, state and local agencies dedicated to working together to reduce heroin deaths. Ross County has been selected by the Ohio Department of Public Safety to implement this comprehensive approach to combating the heroin overdose epidemic.
The Hope Partnership Project will provide funding, technical assistance, law enforcement support, treatment providers and prevention specialists to combat the heroin drug problem in Ross County.
The Hope Partnership Project aims to increase public safety in communities throughout Ohio by developing effective community-based strategies that reduce the demand and supply for heroin and other opiate drugs. Further, the community-based strategies should emphasize and support cross-system collaboration.
Ross County would like to introduce several members of the Hope Partnership Project, Post Overdose Response Team or PORT. The goal of the team is to provide resources and support to families battling addiction.
