We are looking for compassionate and caring individuals to serve as volunteer “Angels” for Operation HOPE (the Heroin – Opiate Prevention Effort). Volunteer “Angels” will receive training to help understand addiction and how to interact with and assist people experiencing addiction-related issues. “Angels” will also learn how Operation HOPE helps people find recovery and access resources for their addiction . When someone comes to the police station to ask for help with a heroin or opiate addiction, we will call out an Operation Hope “Angel”.
