Selling Hope: A Creative Journey into Opioid Addiction
Opioid overdose is now the leading cause of death for Americans under age 50. Overdoses killed more than 2,000 people in Massachusetts alone last year. This crisis has been particularly devastating for Boston's homeless community, with overdoses being the leading cause of death for this population.

It didn't. That is, until our team started working on our campaign to raise awareness for Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program's latest innovation.
