The History of the Washington Parish Opioid Consortium
In June 2019, Volunteers of America was awarded a twelve month HRSA Rural Communities Opioid Response Program Planning Grant. This grant was prepared with the assistance of Our Lady of the Angels Hospital, Florida Parishes Human Services Authority and ADAPT. We also had the support of Senator Beth Mizell and Representative Malinda White. Over the 12 month period, the Washington Parish Opioid Consortium will be implemented and meetings will be held to obtain input from parish leaders, those in the healthcare community, school systems, law enforcement, faith-based community and the general public. Based upon the input received from all parties, a Strategic Plan, a Workforce Plan and a Sustainability Plan will be written.
Based upon the information gathered and the three Plans, another grant will be written requesting funds to implement the program(s) identified in the plans that would best address the opioid crisis in Washington Parish. The Bogalusa Mayor's Wellness Council and Bogalusa Strong support these efforts to address the opioid epidemic in our city and parish.
If your schedule allows, we would appreciate your attendance at this meeting.
Also, please bring a friend(s)!
