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.

“The 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.”
