The New Rochelle Police Department is partnering with Hope Not Handcuffs  -Hudson Valley to help people struggling with addiction. We look forward to soon being able to offer this resource to our community and open our front door as a first step in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. To launch this program, Hope Not Handcuffs needs the assistance of local volunteer “Angels”.

How the program works: Anyone seeking help in the fight of drug or alcohol addiction may come to the New Rochelle Police Department and ask for the Hope Not Handcuffs program.  They will be treated with compassion and respect.  A call will be made to an “Angel” volunteer from the Hope Not Handcuffs team who will come and actively seek out a treatment plan.  Individuals suffering from addiction will instantly gain an advocate and a network of resources designed to lead them to success, regardless of insurance status.  Hope Not Handcuffs is a proactive approach to reach out to people struggling with drug addiction to encourage them to seek recovery and regain control of their lives.  

Volunteer Angels are an integral part of Hope Not Handcuffs. If you’re compassionate and would like to make a difference in someone’s life, you are needed! The hours are flexible and the work is incredibly rewarding.

Hope Not Handcuffs-Hudson Valley, a program of the Tri-County Community Partnership Inc., is aimed at bringing law enforcement, community organizations and volunteers together to find viable treatment options for individuals seeking help to reduce dependency with any substance including heroin, prescription drugs, and alcohol. HNH-HV started in Orange County, NY in

 January of 2019, since then the program has rapidly grown to include 65 police departments across 6 counties, the program has a volunteer force of over 500 Angels.  We are pleased to be able to offer this program to our community.
