The impact of heroin on our community is incalculable. As an attorney, the impact of heroin on our criminal justice system is overwhelming. We all need to play a part in helping stem this epidemic and make Ohio an example of how a community responds to a raging health crisis.

The opiate problem is significant and demands a creative and equally significant response. The OCAH initiatives are working and are proving to be cost effective and scalable. I am privileged to work with such a talented board and passionate group of donors who have made our first steps possible. There is more healing to come!

Heroin is a major social malady with deadly consequences. Opiate addiction is costing lives (33,000 overdose deaths last year in US) and resources (600 billion annually) at an alarming rate. This epidemic is not only decimating families but is a growing threat to our health care system and national security. I couldn’t merely be a spectator in such a momentous conflict.

I am blessed to have a family comprised of beautiful human beings.

Kathleen Ann Kinane (Kathy)

Co-owner of Manor House Banquet & Conference Center with husband Bill since 1997

I became involved with OCAH because my family was affected by the heroin epidemic with the death of our son Eric at the age of 30 in October of 2013. I feel that there is much to be done to help those currently addicted and much to be accomplished in the areas of education and prevention with not only heroin but opiates…and other addictions as well.

I have been married to my husband Bill for 43 years. I have a daughter Amanda, a son-in-law Sam and two grandsons…Jackson who will be 7 in December and Carson who is 4 1/2. And as mentioned above our son Eric passed away in October of 2013.

Pastor, Crossroads Mason

Heroin has impacted so many in our community, both those who struggle with addiction, as well as their family and friends. It's easy for anyone associated with heroin to feel a level of both shame and hopelessness. But we want to remind people that God has a hopeful future for them, and that there's nothing to be ashamed of. We are all in this together. We're OneCity Against Heroin.

Tim is married to Mary and they have 4 children: Hannah, Leah, Jeremiah and Noah. They live in Mason.

Care Coordinators

Lindsey Ervin

Heroin HopeLine Care Coordinator

"I became involved in this field because I want to give back to the world what was given to my mother and myself many years ago: HOPE. It took someone believing in my mother and teaching her that hope was available for her to realize that there is life without drugs. I feel that sharing the gift of hope allows me to feel successful in my career and to know that I am making a difference in the world one person at a time.

"OCAH means hope to me. It means giving mothers a chance to rebuild broken relationships. OCAH means love to me. It allows me to love people when they don’t know how to love themselves."

Elizabeth Ellen Dickinson

Heroin HopeLine Care Coordinator

"I have worked in the field of Substance Abuse since 2011 and it quickly became a passion for me. When I interviewed for the position of Care Coordinator for OneCity Against Heroin I wasn’t sure what to expect. I left the interview excited and determined to be a part of the program. Thankfully, the program felt the same about me. Each day I get to interact with people, families and organizations that are suffering the effects of the drug epidemic. I get to be a part of programs working to bring awareness and education to the region and to help change the way we see substance abuse. I am lucky to get a firsthand look of how our program gives people resources and hope and truly changes lives. OneCity Against Heroin allows me a unique position to make a real difference in people’s lives. I’m so thankful to be in this position."

Victoria Hensley

Heroin HopeLine Care Coordinator

"I became involved in Service Work after my younger sister passed away from a heroin overdose in July 2014. I truly feel this is my calling in life. I fight for others that have no voice, and will not stop fighting until they can advocate for themselves and others. It’s a true blessing to a have group like OCAH fighting for the community, coming together and making a difference in people’s lives. I am a mother of two beautiful children ages 17 and 6 years old. I fight hard for the Middletown Community -- after all it’s where I’m from. I studied Social Work at Cincinnati State and received my AA and CDCA ll . I also received an Addiction Studies certificate."
