State opioid Response
St. Thomas Episcopal Church
St. Thomas Episcopal Church will utilize this funding to continue providing support to families impacted by opioid overdose, to mobilize faith leaders, and to educate community members. In collaboration with the Chariho Youth Task Force, the Episcopal Dioceses of Rhode Island, and the University of Rhode Island’s mobile outreach vehicle St. Thomas Episcopal Church will use innovative solutions to address the opioid epidemic in southern Rhode Island. This project will include a faith leadership forum followed by community coffee hour presentations, growing the Strong Arms Support Group, young engagement, and community outreach through a state-of-the-art mobile vehicle at local events.
