Recruiting for Opioid Emergency Response VISTAs

Posted by SERVE Philadelphia on November 27, 2018

The Office of Civic Engagement and Volunteer Service has an immediate need for Opioid Emergency Response VISTAs to support the Philadelphia Resilience Project.

The Philadelphia Resilience Project is the City’s unified approach to tackle the opioid crisis. On October 3, 2018, Mayor Jim Kenney signed Executive Order 3-18 declaring a citywide emergency and empowering City agencies to come together to immediately solve the problem. Opioid Emergency Response VISTAs will support the goals of the seven Resilience Project Mission Areas: Clearing major encampments, reducing criminal activity, reducing the number of unsheltered individuals, reducing trash and litter, reducing overdoses and the spread of infectious diseases, increasing treatment options, and mobilizing community response.
