Ubuntu: Creating and Sustaining Healthy Communities 29th Annual 2018 UMADAOP State Conference

September 12 – 14, 2018
Airport Embassy Suites, Columbus, OH 43219

Ubuntu, “I am because we are,”  is used to describe the universal bond that connects all of us. As community leaders, social service providers and stakeholders positioned to work in and with urban communities, our ability to work together can maximize resources to create sustainable, lasting change.

The focus of the 2018 Conference is to collectively address the needs of urban communities. We’ll focus on issues impacting our communities and solutions through the lens of Ubuntu. It is our goal to equip service providers across the state with evidence based, culturally competent tools to enhance their service delivery.

Conference tracks include: substance abuse prevention, treatment, recovery, faith and re-entry.

Back to School Donation for the Lima UMADAOP

Aug 02, 2018

Lima’s Urban Minority Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Outreach Program (UMADAOP) received a timely and needed donation.

The Altrusa Club donated backpacks, books, clothing, and other school supplies to the Lima UMADAOP.  This donation is just one of the many service projects done by the club every year.  The mission of the Altrusa Club is to provide services to the community, and this donation was just another way for the group to continue that mission.

“It all fits in with our mission of promoting literacy and helping the community out.  We want to help the kids be ready when it’s time for school to start.  We want to make sure that they get off on the right foot,” said Sandra Bentley, Vice President of the Altrusa Lima Ohio Club.

The Altrusa Club plans to work more with the Lima UMADAOP in the future.
