County Councilwoman Sunny Simon and Euclid Councilwoman Laura J. Gorshe will host a Town Hall Meeting on May 10th to discuss the Fall-out from the Opioid Crisis
Focusing on its Impact on Women and Children in the Foster Care System
The opioid crisis has severely impacted the number of children entering the foster care system.Those numbers are expected to double by the end of 2018, resulting in considerable strain on resources needed to provide families with the appropriate care and interventions required to keep children in a safe and nurturing environment. Many of these children experience tremendous trauma from not only being removed from their homes due to the epidemic but also witnessing episodes of parental overdose.
Please join Cuyahoga County Councilwoman Sunny Simon and Euclid Councilwoman Laura J. Gorshe on May 10th from 6:30- 8:00 pm at the Euclid Public Library for a discussion on this important topic. “ We can make a difference in the lives of families and children touched by the opioid crisis by coming together as one to support and uplift our communities,” states Councilwoman Simon.
There will be a distinguished panel of speakers led by Kate Lodge, Executive Director of (A Place 4 Me) which includes the Honorable Gayle Williams-Byers of South Euclid Municipal Court to provide insights on the immediate and future impacts of the opioid crisis on our community and ways we can help.
A special thank you to the Euclid Public Library for hosting this event.
