We are thrilled to present Brenda Quinn with the 2019 Father Benedict Groeschel Life Award at this year’s banquet.  Brenda played a crucial role on 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.
