WEST WINDSOR – Mercer County’s director of human services will outline the county’s aggressive effort to end chronic homelessness as part of the Mercer County Community College (MCCC) Distinguished Lecture Series on March 2.

“The Journey to End Homelessness in Mercer County” will be the subject of a lecture by Marygrace Billek, Director of Human Services for Mercer County, at noon on Wednesday, March 2 in the Communications Building, Room 109, on the MCCC West Windsor Campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.
