Providing Mobile Social Services and Addictions Mobile Services — 22 Stops Planned at 12 Sites 

Morris County’s mobile social-services-center-on-wheels, Navigating Hope, and the Sheriff’s Hope One addiction services vehicle will be crisscrossing Morris County over the next six weeks, making a combined 22 visits to a dozen sites, from Riverdale to Washington Township.

The mobile programs visit supermarkets, libraries, churches, train stations, soup kitchens, shopping malls, and many other locations to reach county residents in need of assistance.

Stops are planned through Jan. 10 at locations in Dover, Florham Park,, Hanover Township, Lincoln Park, Morristown, Randolph, Riverdale, Rockaway Township, Washington Township, and Wharton. Navigating Hope‘s runs frequently are coordinated with the Morris County Sheriff’s Hope One van.
