Homelessness Resource Panel at CMCC

Representatives of The Branches of Rio Grande, an outreach ministry of St. Mary’s Episcopal Church, and the Cape May County government visited Mary McWilliams’ English 102 class Monday, April 4, to discuss their respective roles in helping the county’s homelessness. The panel answered many questions posed by the students that offered insight to the help that is available, as well as the obstacles encountered. Students in the class are studying homelessness for their semester research paper. Pictured, from left are: Larry Schmidt, assistant director of The Branches; Susan Mayfair, director of The Branches; Kristine Gabor, freeholder and director of Health and Human Services; Pat Devaney, director of Human Services; and Sarah Maloney, director of Social Services.

Students from Professor Mike Bolicki and Professor Helen McCaffrey’s class attended, as well as Dr. Mitchell Levy and Tammy DeFranco. Students were engaged and involved with the panel and asked many questions.
