PAARI AmeriCorps: Law Enforcement Host Site Application
PAARI was recently selected by the Massachusetts Service Alliance to receive an AmeriCorps grant that will allow PAARI to launch a new statewide program that will place 25 AmeriCorps members in service with host police department sites across Massachusetts; 5 Program Coordinators and 20 Recovery Coaches. The goal of the program is to strengthen and build the capacity of law enforcement agencies to reach more individuals in need and provide better support to the individuals with opioid use disorders accessing treatment referrals through their department.

PAARI is seeking police departments and law enforcement agencies in Massachusetts to become AmeriCorps host sites. As a host site, one or more AmeriCorps service members will be placed directly at your department to help support and improve your program to connect people with substance use disorders to treatment. There are two types of AmeriCorps positions available for your department to consider hosting: Program Coordinators and Recovery Coaches.

Please view this document for more information about the program, benefits to your department, and expectations:
