Navigating Hope and Sheriff’s Hope One Regularly Team Up for Mobile Social Services and Addictions Services

Morris County’s mobile social-services-center-on-wheels, Navigating Hope, is offering services to residents across Morris County, with a scheduled that will take it to six locations in three Morris County towns over the next two weeks — Dover, Morristown, and Parsippany.

Navigating Hope‘s runs frequently are coordinated 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 that may benefit to 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.

“Navigating Hope is about social justice, dignity and respect. It provides access to resources that our neighbors may not know exists, and will offer face-to-face support and engagement. It is also about community coming together to serve community,’’ said Family Promise Executive Director Joann Bjornson.
