Become a Volunteer "Angel" for Hope Not Handcuffs and Help Save Lives

Become an Angel to Help Save Lives

Hope Not Handcuffs is an initiative of Families Against Narcotics (FAN) that helps people who are struggling with drug or alcohol addiction get placed into treatment. Anybody can walk into a participating police station and ask for assistance, at which point that department will contact FAN. A volunteer “Angel” will then be dispatched to the station to offer support and work with FAN’s call center to get the person the help they need.

How Can You Become an Angel?

This program, which is operational in Harper Woods and all five Grosse Pointes, needs volunteers to run smoothly. If you're a compassionate person who lives in the Harper Woods/Grosse Pointe area and would like to help FAN help people who are ready to get treatment for their substance use disorder, we would love to have you join our team.
