Supporting the Overdose Rescue Pack Program

Donate Now

The Spirit of Charity Foundation continues to promote what Charity Hospital has stood for; the ideals of humanism and caring for the most vulnerable in our society. Within continuing that mission, Karen and Glenn Solomon have established this fund honoring their son, Josh’s legacy. The fund aids in the development and enrichment of care provided for indigent or underinsured patients suffering from addiction and substance misuse.

"The fund speaks with actions louder than words: in this place, we meet you where you are, and stand with you in your need. We will not allow your current situation to stand between you and your brave choice to ask for help. Please help us give voice to hope, you are not alone." - Karen & Glenn Solomon

This task is a considerable challenge that includes providing comprehensive, integrated medical, laboratory, and support services to ensure University Medical Center New Orleans' patients are engaged and retained in care.

Overdose Rescue Packs are a deliverable on necessary locations throughout the hospital for continued patient use. These packs are designed to reverse acute opiate overdose for lifesaving intervention and are part of routine discharges. In partnership with the Foundation, New Orleans Health Department, LSUHSC Emergency Medicine, University Medical Center and Orleans, Jefferson and St. Bernard Parish Fire Departments the program is available to the general public in need through participating fire houses.

Josh’s memory and the Solomon Family continue our nearly 300-year legacy of promoting health and wellness, caring for those marginalized by societal inequities... and standing tall during adversity.
