Who is Andy’s Angels?

Andy’s Angels is a non-profit foundation formed in an effort to educate the community on opiate abuse and provide support for families and those suffering addiction. Our foundation raises funds to assist with the costs for treatment programs. Andy’s Angels honors Andy Hirst who passed away May 17, 2010 from a heroin overdose.

Opiate/heroin addiction is a serious and deadly disease that is overwhelmingly prevalent today. It is our mission as a foundation to tell Andy’s story, stop heroin use before it starts and help others overcome their addiction.

If you, a family member or someone you know is suffering from opiate addiction please feel free to contact us. If you cannot afford treatment please fill out our assistance application and tell us your story.

Andy’s Place at Full Capacity

Currently Andy’s Place is at full capacity.  Applicants should contact their parole/probation officer and request a recommendation for a room at Andy’s Place.  Once that is done it all goes through the legal system from there and if accepted, the individual will be put on a waiting list.

If you are not part of the Recovery Court Program, you can reach out to the Engagement Center in Jackson.  They offer a bed and safe place to stay for 48 hours.  It is part of Home of New Vision which is an excellent resource for helping find treatment. https://homeofnewvision.org/engagement-center/
