About Navigating Hope

Navigating Hope, a mobile outreach initiative designed to provide social services, is a partnership between the Morris County Department of Human Services and Family Promise of Morris County. It is a complementary service to the Hope One van, which provides mobile mental health and addiction services across our county. Navigating Hope will offer on-site benefits eligibility screenings and application assistance, as well as linkage to other community services.

Navigating Hope is proud to participate in Team Up, a partnership between Morris County and the Mental Health Association of Essex and Morris. Team Up focuses on mental health issues exacerbated by COVID-19, with a focus on suicide prevention.
