CLINTON, NJ – Freedom House New Jersey and the Somerset Patriots Baseball Club have come together to help raise awareness on substance use disorders as well as to celebrate recovery. Freedom House will be present at the May 23rd game as the Somerset Patriots face the Sugar Land Skeeters.

“We are delighted to partner with the Somerset Patriots Baseball Club,” says Dawn Knill, Freedom House director of marketing and development. “Baseball is wholesome family fun.

We look forward to a great night with a very special message.”
