Creative Solutions, Creative Results.

Welcome


At Project Momentum, we want to build a healthy community.

We are a non-profit 501c3 organization that was formed in 2005 to assist with the HIV epidemic that was plaguing Nash, Edgecombe, Wilson, and Greene counties.
Project Momentum was founded on and continues to operate under the basic principle that in order to treat an individual, you have to treat the whole individual; mind, body, and spirit, in order to make a difference.

The holistic approach to providing services is recognized as being the standard and not the norm for the Project Momentum staff. Although small in size, the impact that Project Momentum had on the HIV/AIDS epidemic was powerful and noteworthy.

In 2011, Project Momentum shifted the focus of care to address additional needs and services that were deemed urgent and emergent in the community: mental illness and substance abuse.

With the transition to a state licensed MH/SA organization, our mission was expanded to include being a comprehensive and coordinated care organization whose focus is to provide the highest in client confidentiality while providing immediate crisis support.

Addiction Algebra


Addiction Algebra
Project Momentum, Inc. in collaboration with Twin Counties Partnership for Healthier Communities are pleased to announce that they have received a three-year grant   from the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust in Winston-Salem, North Carolina to lead a community based research data collection to assess community and stake holder insights pertaining to substance use/misuse in Edgecombe and Nash Counties. Our priorities will include gathering comprehensive data to assess the root causes and systemic issues that contribute to substance use/misuse, to support the community and make future recommendations for designing programs to meet the needs of people with substance use, and to reduce substance use rates in our counties.
 
The project entitled Addiction Algebra will explore community perceptions on what constitutes “problematic” substances, impacts of social determinants of health, systemic and environmental factors, a review of the forms of recovery support and if it represents a “one size fits all model” in its current format. We will strive to provide county level data which will offer a clearer perspective of use in our area and will allow us to develop programs specific to our geographical needs, thus improving the lives of local residents. Project staff have utilized the past six months as a planning phase for creating and developing tools to chat with community stake holds. Addiction Algebra received $722, 000 from the Trust to be distributed over three years.
 
Mysha Wynn, Executive Director of Project Momentum, Inc, a local substance abuse professional and service provider stated, “This grant will allow us collaborate with other providers and stakeholders to formulate a plan to address the substance misuse across our two great counties.”
