In December, Burlington County opened an innovative, and
first-of-its-kind Housing Hub in the Human Services Facility that serves as a
single point of entry for residents who are homeless or experiencing a housing
crisis. This new Hub serves as a fusion center to respond to residents’ needs
by providing immediate access to services, case management, guidance and our
network of community providers.
Burlington County’s Hope One mobile unit offers critical support
for persons and families struggling with addiction and related issues with the
goal of preventing drug overdoses and deaths and providing linkages for
treatment and recovery support services. The unit, which schedules stops all
around the county, offers Narcan trainings and free kits, immunizations, and
the opportunity to meet with a counselor and coach.

Housing Hub and Hope One mobile unit are both doing an incredible job of
assisting residents in need,” concluded Freeholder Hopson. “We are thankful to
have these resources in Burlington County and want to equip them with the tools
they need to keep serving our residents.”
