McKinney-Vento Region 8 Program Team Members

  • We are here to serve all school districts in the Cape May, Cumberland and Salem County regions as well as families who are in a period of transition due to losing permanent housing.  If you have students who are attending schools in these counties and you need help with your child's academic, social and emotional wellness as you work through your situation, we are here to help.  Statistics show that children who are going through challenges due to a "lack of fixed or permanent housing" will feel additional stressors and anxiety as well as develop habits that are not conducive to performing successfully in school.  We want to be able to offer assistance to these children to help them overcome these barriers to success and let them know that there situation is only temporary.  Please take the time to fill out the Request Form and we will contact you immediately.
