The Hope Partnership Project introduced themselves and some events in the March 25th Chillicothe Council session.

Anna Armistead, program coordinator, handed out three fliers. The first was on the organization, which she says the mission is to end overdose so no more lives are lost. The Hope Partnership Project is a central hub for all concerned agencies and organizations.

Another flyer was on a community forum on harm reduction, which she says is a prevention method to help save lives of drug users, minimize effects on them, and help get into them treatment.

Part of that effort are five vending machines in Ross County that have been operational since November 13th, says Armistead. The forum will be 5:30pm to 7:30 April 15th at the Ross County Service Center.

The third flyer was on community conversations about opioid use disorder, and one training session. There are four events in Chillicothe, Washington Court House, and Waverly. Armistead said attendees can become facilitators of conversations.

The Chillicothe session is 5:30 to 8pm today in the Carlisle Community Room. The last, a training session, requires attendance at a previous session. It also is in the in the Carlisle Community Room at 9 South Paint Street, from 9am to noon March 28th.
