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 eight locations in five Morris County towns over the next three weeks — Dover, Morristown, Parsippany, Jefferson Township and Rockaway.
