UCC, Integrity House Team Up to Assist Hope Village II Guests

UCC recently teamed up with Integrity House, one of New Jersey’s largest nonprofit providers of substance use disorder treatment, to help better serve guests at the newly established Hope Village II site in Newark.

Officially opened earlier this year, Hope Village II, located at 51-63 Elizabeth Ave., is a 20-bed “bridge housing community” that serves people in immediate need of shelter.

UCC, which provides case management, supervision, and more secure housing placement for the Hope Village guests, was proud to team up with Integrity House officials at a recent event aimed to bridge the relationship between Integrity House and Hope Village II guests.


Integrity House officials helped familiarize the guests with services and resources the nonprofit will provide in the future. The transitional housing center was built out of seven shipping containers and furnished with beds, kitchens and bathrooms equipped with appliances, and decorated with paintings. The site also has an administrative office for support staff and a multi-purpose space for its guests. Additionally, it holds a park, community gardens, and greenhouses.

While Hope Village II is dedicated toward providing guests in need of a safe, warm space to lay their head at night, it also affords them the opportunity to access a range of support services as they rest and recover. Outreach services that organizations like Integrity House provide can be essential to guests at the site - some of whom may have a disabling condition or who have spent prolonged time on the streets.
