Starting September 6, 2018, Sylvina Mendez, MSW, a bilingual social worker from Monmouth County Division of Social Services, will be assigned to Brookdale.
Ms. Mendez has been with the agency for 30 years; she will be able to provide information and referrals to a variety of programs administered by the agency, as well as assistance in navigating agency benefits and programs such as SNAP (food stamps), utility assistance, housing assistance, and Medicaid.
You don’t have to be a student to ask her for assistance – she’s here to help the entire Brookdale community. She will be on the Lincroft campus in MAC 112 on Mondays 1:30 -4:30 PM and Thursdays 8:30-11:30 AM., for both walk-ins and appointments. To make an appointment, please call 732-224-2106 or email Sylvina.Mendez@co.monmouth.nj.us
