IMPORTANT information about a statewide project

On behalf of the United Way of Central West Virginia, West Virginia Statewide Afterschool Network, and the West Virginia Rural Health Association, we are requesting your participation in a new project focused on a replication effort with our organizations and the United Ways of Tennessee and the Tennessee Afterschool Network. This project will create new resources for afterschool and United Way in West Virginia through a comprehensive approach to the opioids crisis in our state that includes compassionately aiding those currently in need while proactively identifying and addressing causal factors. This includes (1) interventions and support for those suffering or recovering from opioid use, and (2) education and preventive interventions for children, youth and families. 

We are requesting your participation in this project by joining in a maximum of two task force meetings to support project development. The first virtual meeting will be held on Monday, August 9 at 2:00 pm. You are also invited to join a combined virtual meeting between West Virginia and the United Ways of Tennessee and the Tennessee Afterschool Network on Monday, November 8th at 10:00 am.  

We hope you will join us! Please feel free to contact Margaret Ann O’Neal at , Susan Gamble at or Rich Sutphin at with your questions.
