We are the most publicly funded organization of our kind in the state to include being the primary provider of inpatient and residential services for Monmouth County indigent residents in need. We appreciate the confidence also placed in us by an additional 16 of New Jersey’s 21 counties that contract with us directly as well as to Federal Probation, and the New Jersey Department of Human Services and Department of Children and Families that both license and contract with us for services. New Hope also benefits from the ongoing and full accreditation by the Commission on the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities and in 2018 was able to help nearly 5,000 in need begin their journey in recovery.
