Project Lazarus Lancaster County is an initiative of the Social Work Department of Lancaster Health Center. Fred Wells Brason II is the founder of Project Lazarus, a nationally renowned community-driven overdose prevention program in Wilkes County, North Carolina. In May of 2017, Fred came to Lancaster to speak with community leaders about how Lancaster could create their own version of the Lazarus program. Many people in the community were inspired by the success of the North Carolina model and decided to form Project Lazarus Lancaster County. The organization was created on the premise that an involved community can make a difference. Project Lazarus Lancaster welcomes all members of the community to their meetings which are held monthly.
