There is a rising Heroin Epidemic in Porter County.
What can we do about it?

Sunday, February 19: 6pm-8pm

Community leaders will share thoughts on this growing problem in Porter County and how we can make positive change.

Forum speakers:
Jay Birky

Jay is the Senior Pastor of Cornerstone Community Church in Kouts. He has been volunteering with the Porter County Sheriff’s Department for over 14 years. He also runs a program at the Porter County Jail which teaches life skills to inmates.
Herb Stepherson
Local author

Herb’s family moved to NWI at the age of 12. For the last 14 years, Herb has been battling the nightmares of addiction. Heroin and cocaine took him to the absolute edges of humanity, even to the point of near-suicide. God intervened and delivered him from death. His book, Junkbox Diaries, is a gripping account of life as an addict. Herb celebrates life in recovery and is an intervention coordinator.
Allen Wright

Allen has served with Frontline Foundations since January 2016 as the Director of Community Outreach. This faith-based organization began in Porter County in 2007. Its mission is to be a source of hope to those suffering from alcohol and drug abuse while providing effective treatment and recovery.
