Hope not Handcuffs-Hudson Valley

Hope Not Handcuffs – Hudson Valley (HNHHV) is a collaboration among local police departments and specially trained community volunteers who work together to help people battling substance use disorder get the treatment they need.

Annette Kahrs, President of the Tri-County Community Partnership and Program Director of HNHHV, has worked tirelessly to bring this effective model to our Hudson Valley communities.

Today, alongside program partners from the City of Middletown Police Department- NY, Goshen PD, and Crawford PD, I presented Annette with a New York State Senate Commendation award to recognize her strong leadership in the fight against the opioid epidemic.

This is the kind of collaborative community work that saves lives, and I encourage you to learn more about the program: bit.ly/2Zrwedj.
