H.O.P.E. for Nutley


About H.O.P.E. for Nutley

H.O.P.E for Nutley was created in 2008 by Commissioner Alphonse Petracco in an effort to help educate parents about the dangers and consequences of drug and alcohol abuse. With the main focus still being on substance abuse education, in August 2016, we have expanded the mission to include everyday issues that affect parents, guardians and youth of all ages.

Officers and Public safety employees coordinate educational projects for Nutley students’ district wide like the Above the Influence (ATI) campaign, Nutley Flashmob, and the Carnival of HOPE for Nutley.  HOPE also hosts presentations for parents like Hidden in Plain Sight, Kids Count, How to Talk Teen and the Wake Up Parents educational series.

H.O.P.E. Speaks - Coming Soon!

Under the direction of Commissioner Alphonse Petracco, the H.O.P.E. for Nutley initiative will soon be going viral!!. . . Stay tuned for information on our newly designed website, social media sites, and email communications.

We are extremely excited to unveil our newest project: H.O.P.E. Speaks, a video series designed to give in depth and gripping testimonies into the issues and therapies of addiction and other important community issues.

Our goal is to reach the entire community, and the success of the H.O.P.E. for Nutley weekly newsletter has made it apparent that in the hectic and busy lives of our residents, having the ability to read, correspond, and view on the fly and in the comfort and privacy of your own home is optimum.  Therefore, we have been busy creating our new brand, and with it, a re-designed website, with informational portals, and videos.
