The Gaston County Opioid Overdose Response Team is designed to end the cycle of repeat overdoses by providing opioid-dependent individuals with opportunities to convert near-death experiences into life-changing events that can lead them to recovery and reduced risk of illness and death.
Points of Hope is a program with multiple aspects of Harm Reduction Outreach, including syringe exchange, naloxone/narcan distribution, peer support, and justice center education.
Our local homeless population consists of not only individuals in shelters, but also a large number of people who live in “tent cities.
We work to ensure they have food, clothing, and hygiene products, as well as help them to carry out trash from the sites. We also use donated durable medical equipment to help set up safe toilets for residents.
Your support and contributions will enable us to extend hope and extend life. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
