The Hope Hub
The Hope Hub is a community program that is aimed to help the at-risk population in Morris County. The success of Hope One motivated the formation of the Hope Hub in order to connect individuals who need assistance with services. Spearheaded by Hope Hub Coordinator Officer Chelsea Whiting, the Hope Hub is a multidisciplinary panel made up of law enforcement, social services, mental health services, healthcare providers, treatment providers and recovery specialists. Individuals and families struggling referred to the Hope Hub are connected to life-changing services. Follow the link for more information and resources.
