Joins with Sheriff’s Hope One Mobile Program to Serve County Residents
Morris County’s new mobile social-services-center-on-wheels, Navigating Hope, will be offering services to residents across Morris County, with a schedule that will take it to 10 locations in seventy-five Morris County towns through the end of August.
Navigating Hope‘s runs are coordinated in many instances with the Morris County Sheriff’s Hope One van, which provides mobile mental health and addiction services across the county. The two programs provide complimentary services benefitting residents at various locations.
“Navigating Hope, along with Hope One, embraces the county’s Stigma-Free initiative, fostering assistance and treatment for county residents in need,’’ said Morris County Freeholder Kathy DeFillippo, liaison to the county’s Human Services agencies.
Stops through Aug. 29 include locations in Boonton, Dover, Madison, Morris Plains, Morristown, Morris Township, Mount Olive, and Parsippany (see list below).
Check out the Navigating Hope calendar for any additions or changes.
The new mobile service offers on-site benefits eligibility screenings and application assistance, plus linkage to other community services. It is a partnership between the Morris County Department of Human Services and Family Promise of Morris County.
Navigating Hope assists applicants who would have difficulty visiting either the county Morristown or Dover offices. It visits many of Hope One’s regular stops, such as supermarkets, libraries, churches, train stations and shopping malls, among others.
