One of the West Warwick Health Equity Zone’s (HEZ) priorities is to address the needs of grandparents raising grandchildren due to the opioid epidemic.  A resident of West Warwick, Magdalena Andreozzi brought the concept of  ‘A Grand Space Workshop’ to our overdose prevention and recovery workgroup, which was quickly added to our community strategic plan.

We are thankful Grands Flourish, Inc  who is a member of our collaborative and the driver of this work in West Warwick. We thank Westbay Community Action, the Kent County YMCA, and Family Service of RI for supporting some upcoming community projects with Grands Flourish and the HEZ.

We appreciate all of our HEZ collaborative members for supporting this community to achieve collective impact.
