Providing Mobile Social Services and Addictions Mobile Services — 20 Stops Planned at 16 Sites through January
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 19 visits to 15 sites, from the Mendham Township Library to the Morristown Green.
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. 30 at locations in Dover, Mendham Township, Morristown, Randolph, Riverdale, and Rockaway Township. Navigating Hope‘s runs frequently are coordinated with the Morris County Sheriff’s Hope One van.
“We are reaching out to residents in all areas of Morris County with Navigating Hope and Hope One to provide Stigma-Free assistance, counseling, and treatment for county residents in need,’’ said Morris County Freeholder Kathy DeFillippo, liaison to the county’s Human Services agencies. “These are residents who may not be able to travel to county offices or who have fallen through the cracks of the system.”
