Welcome to

WASHTENAW FAMILIES AGAINST NARCOTICS

A community-based program, Washtenaw FAN seeks to change and save lives by empowering individuals and communities through education, prevention, and support.  By partnering with area treatment and public safety professionals, the legal community, schools, and other help organizations, we are facilitating change in the way Substance Use Disorder (SUD) is viewed and treated in Washtenaw County and beyond.

We are honored to partner with WFAN Board member Dr. Adam
Joy in launching and promoting the fundraiser Help Keep Recovery
Warm. This program will provide new winter clothing for people in
recovery. Last year’s fundraiser raised $2,200. 

 

We believe we can improve upon our past efforts. In fact, our goal
for this year is to triple last year's total!  To help us reach that goal,
we've already secured a private donor willing to match contributions up to $3,000 and possibly more. The Joy Family Center is going to match $200 in contributions.

 

Your generous donations will help some of the most vulnerable people in our community.  100% of the funds raised will go directly toward purchasing items to keep people warm and dry as they pursue a life of recovery. We have the opportunity to raise over $6,000, so please join us in supporting this worthy cause.
