My name is Marilyn Verdugo and I am the new Family Partner at the Palisades Family Success Center. I started at Palisades Family Success Center as a volunteer from Hudson County Community College. Previously, I was pursuing a career in ultrasound but realized it was not my calling. I want to be able to help and support others. At Palisades Family Success Center, I found that I have the opportunity to be of service to many community members of all ages. Currently, I am attending Hudson County Community College and majoring in Social Work. I will be graduating this upcoming Fall 2023. Ultimately, I hope to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work. I look forward to being a part of the Palisades Family Success Center and creating a positive impact for all families in the community!
