Thrive for Change is a small non-profit in Northeast Ohio that’s dedicated to preventing loss due to overdoses in our state through Narcan distribution and community education. Over the last two years, our team has served 9,700 people and distributed over 9,900 Narcan kits across 51 counties in Ohio. With an estimated 5% of naloxone kits being used to save a life, that's 400+ lives potentially saved by our program.
Unfortunately, as a harm reduction non-profit, our work is often dictated by major government funders who could decide to reduce or stop our funding altogether at any time. A gap in this funding would be untenable for our organization, forcing us to shut down, let go of our team, and leave thousands of people without our life-saving services.
Thankfully, there is a solution. If we can get enough everyday people like you to contribute just a small amount one time or on a monthly basis, our organization can weather these ebbs and flows of government funding and make sure that those in need get access to Narcan and other life-saving tools. For less than a typical monthly Netflix bill or a lunch out with friends, you could help us serve nearly 1,000 people and save an estimated 50 Ohioans from overdose fatalities every month.
For every $12 donated our organization can distribute one Narcan kit to an Ohioan in need.
Thrive for Change is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. All donations are tax-deductible and donors will be sent an email receipt with our EIN # (87-0872533). If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to our executive director Bethany Roebuck at 330-466-6905 or via email at [email protected].
