Brenda Quinn is a mother of three beautiful girls and one of five children to Robert and Doris Hughes. She is Asst. Professor of Chemistry and Biology at Salem Community College and has research in Monoclonal Antibody targeting of Liposome Encased Chemotherapeutic Agents to Lung Cancer Cells published in Cancer Research and Laboratory Investigations.

In listening to and watching her dad’s involvement in the pro-life movement, she learned the importance of respecting life in all of its stages. She has been involved in public speaking for life issues since 2002. She has testified before the State Senate against the use of embryonic stem cells.

She was part of the founding team for the South Jersey Good Counsel Home. She, along with Bill Klatt and Christopher Bell led the team in raising funds to open the home in Riverside. In the period leading up to the opening of the home, she was also in charge of doing outreach to mothers in need. During this time, she helped to save the lives of 47 babies, by providing their moms with necessary resources.

In 2014, she became the Director of the Collegium Center for Faith and Culture in Haddon Heights, which is a center for evangelization and catechesis of the Catholic Faith. In this role, she plans presentations, leads prayer groups, heads study programs, leads pilgrimages and goes into the streets with team members, bringing the Good News of the Catholic Faith to anyone who wants to talk. Their teams handed out over 1200 Rosaries in the past year, speaking with and praying with individuals and families, inviting them to accept God’s love and accept His invitation to learn more about His desire for their lives.

Come and meet Brenda and some of the moms and babies who benefit from your support every day and listen to their success stories first hand!  The banquet promises to be an enjoyable evening celebrating hope with our beautiful mothers & babies, faithful supporters, donors, staff, and volunteers.
