HELP US SAVE COPE
COPE Network provides resources and a supportive space for the substance use and recovery communities of Kalamazoo.
As of August 2021, COPE is being displaced from the building we've been working at for the last four years. We now need help from the community to keep COPE alive.

We are always looking for donations of instruments, arts & crafts supplies, clothes, furniture, housewares, camping supplies, and other miscellaneous items, either for use in our facility, for use by our participants, or for our annual garage sale fundraiser.

If you or someone you love is struggling with substance use disorder and you are concerned for them or seeking support for yourself, please don't hesitate to reach out to us.
At COPE we are a community of people with lived experience as well as families and friends of people affected by substance use. We are happy to help any way we can.
