Opioid Epidemic

St. Joseph County - Minding the gap

The Polis Center at IUPUI

Funding agencies play a big role in how organizations collaborate and with whom. This can have a considerable impact on how services are organized and delivered. For well over 20 years, funding agencies at the federal, state and local levels have encouraged cross-sector partnerships as a way to close gaps in service delivery and as a way to improve services and program outcomes. However, many social issues, such as the opioid epidemic, require strong in-sector partnerships as well as cross-sector partnerships. Using maps, such as the IDP maps, can help funding agencies identify gaps in the system for health services delivery in the community. It can also help funding agencies make more informed decisions regarding guidelines and requirements to allow their funding to have a greater impact.

This project focuses on St. Joseph County in northern Indiana, the fifth largest county by population in the state. It highlights organizations serving communities in South Bend, Mishawaka, North Liberty, Lakeville, Osceola, New Carlisle, Granger and others.
