Opioid Epidemic Presentation 
During this week’s Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS) Child Fatality Review Team quarterly conference call, Jeff Ciminesi, our Program Development Coordinator, presented information about the opioid epidemic and the efforts in our region to combat the epidemic. Jeff shared some of the history behind the epidemic and the devastating impact the crisis has had on families in our communities. He also presented information about the coordinated efforts to combat the epidemic by coalitions such as the Allegany County Heroin and Opioid Ad-Hoc Committee, the Cattaraugus County Heroin/Opioid Task Force and Healthy Cattaraugus County. I want to thank Anne O’Neil, CFRT Program Coordinator at OCFS, for inviting Jeff to share information on this timely topic.
Safe Sleep Ambassadors
I’m pleased to report that our Cribs for Kids program has continued to bring new organizations and medical providers on board as Safe Sleep Ambassadors. I want to thank Dr. Leo Cusumano, Dr. Sri Nidhi Ganji, the Salvation Army in Dunkirk and the Cattaraugus and Chautauqua county locations of the St. Gianna Molla Pregnancy Outreach Center for becoming Safe Sleep Ambassadors. Our Safe Sleep Ambassadors agree to promote a consistent safe sleep message to the parents and caregivers they serve. They also agree to refer parents or caregivers to the Cribs for Kids program if they are in need of a safe place for their baby to sleep. Safe Sleep Ambassadors are a crucial part of the program and help spread the word about safe sleep. We are grateful for their support. Recently our Cribs for Kids program applied for funding from the Allegany County Area Foundation, the Northern Chautauqua Region Community Foundation, the Garman Family Foundation, and the Bethesda Foundation to support and expand the program. If your organization is interested in supporting the Cribs for Kids program by holding a Dress Down Day, let us know.
