MORRISTOWN, NJ - Morris County's mobile social services center-on-wheels, 'Navigating Hope', will be making three stops in Morristown in September to provide mobile services across the county.
“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 aims at assisting residents with EITC (tax credits), WIC (nutritional assistance), aging services, domestic violence services, veterans services, health and wellness services, legal services, mental health services and transportation.
"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.
The mobile service unit will be at the Relay for Recover on the Morristown Green on September 19, the Morristown Festival on the Green on September 29 and at the Morristown Community Soup Kitchen on September 30.
Community members who are not able to make these dates, can visit the Navigating Hope Team at QuickCheck (Rockaway Borough, 25 W. Main Street) on September 23, Homeless Solutions (31 Drakestown Road, Washington Township) on September 24, Trinity Sop Kitchen (123 East. Blackwell Street, Dover) on September 26, Mount Arlington Center (310-324 Howard Blvd, Mt.
