The Center for African American Health is pleased to announce we have received funding from Signal Behavioral Health Network (Signal), a Colorado nonprofit organization responsible for providing an extensive scope of substance use disorder services on a regional basis, in the State of Colorado. Signal, in partnership with the State of Colorado, Department of Human Services, Office of Behavioral Health (OBH) has provided resources to the Center for African American Health (CAA Health) through the State Opioid Response (SOR) grant.

CAA Health will utilize grant resources to hire 2 Community Peer Recovery Navigators to connect people within our community to behavioral health services and perform outreach efforts to harm reduction organizations or other entities engaged in naloxone distribution, including withdrawal management facilities. CAA Health will also serve as a critical community convener of meetings focused on addressing opiate challenges in the African American communities in the Denver Metro Area.
