Community Hope, founded almost 30 years ago, has created a brighter future for those in our community disabled by mental illness. In support of their effort, the Chester Lions Club has donated $3,500 to subsidize Community Hope’s Annual Getaway for the disabled in several Morris County residences. The three day trip is the only opportunity for many of them to experience a holiday.
Community Hope creates a bright future for individuals recovering from mental illness and substance abuse by providing housing and services in a dignified, respectful and person-centered way. Emphasizing wellness and recovery, the programs focus on helping individuals set goals and strive to meet them. Residents attend rehabilitation programs, volunteer their time or secure employment.
