Cedar Park Neighbors is hosting a training on how to reverse an opiod overdose. The training will be conducted by Prevention Point Philadelphia, a long-time community based-organization that has worked with tens of thousands of community members struggling with the effects of opiod addiction.
Prevention Point will provide detailed training on how to obtain and administer Narcan, a life-saving medication that, when administered promptly to individuals who are experiencing an overdose, can save their lives.
Prevention Point will explain how people can purchase this over-the-counter medication with or without insurance. In addition, Cedar Park Neighbors is coordinating a pre-order with Prevention Point for Naloxone (generic Narcan) medication kits to be delivered to the training. The kits cost $40 each and contain Naloxone Nasal Spray, a pair of latex gloves, a breathing mask, and an Instructional Sheet.
If you wish to purchase a kit through the CPN pre-order and receive it while attending the training, please complete this form:
The deadline to complete this form and pay online is Monday, September 11th at Noon. Unfortunately, we will not be accepting other forms of payment for this pre-order.
No RSVP or kit purchase is required to attend the training.

The 2017 Gary Bronson Memorial Scholarship Awards will also be presented during the intermission.
Have you ever walked by a house of worship in Cedar Park and wondered what went on inside? What do they believe? Who are their members? How do they live out their faith in the community?
Cedar Park Neighbors and The People’s Baptist Church are hosting a townhall called “Everything you always wants to know about the houses of worship in your Cedar Park neighborhood.”
On Monday, May 15th, more than 50 neighbors joined Cedar Park Neighbors, Cobbs Creek Neighbors, Garden Court Community Association and Walnut Hill Community Association for a town hall meeting with representatives from the 18th Police District to discuss the 2014 shooting of Philippe Holland. See the News page for a complete wrap-up.
The monthly Cedar Park Neighbors Board Meeting will be held in the upper conference room on the East side of Calvary United Methodist Church. Enter through the side door on the east side of the church on Baltimore Avenue. The public is welcome to attend, but only board members will are allowed to cast a vote. We encourage you to attend and learn how to get involved in CPN.
In solidarity with the general strike that is taking place across the country on Friday, Feb 17th, I (with the help of friends and neighbors) am planning a community strike in West Philly. I have been overwhelmed and encouraged by the turnout to rallies and marches in center city in response to the decisions of our political administration but I feel like traveling to center city can present a barrier to members of our community. I would love to create an event that empowers members of our community (particularly those who have not historically been welcomed in political circles) to take part in an event that will give them space to express their feelings about this administration and that celebrates the diversity in our community.
