Meet the Staff

Camp Supervisor Message

The staff and administration team at the Helen Diller Home are thrilled to provide another summer of fun filled vacations to our beloved campers in 2024. As we prepare for another season, we hope to welcome 128 campers (full capacity) to 26th street in Avalon, NJ this summer. We will continue to provide campers with a week-long ‘shore’ experience free of charge to their families. We take our mission seriously at the Home and providing an experience to our campers that they will never forget is our top priority. The town of Avalon and its donors continue to be the foundation of that mission each summer. If it were not for the gracious donors, business owners and board members of the home, we could not do what we do each summer for our campers. Our hearts continue to be full of gratitude and we are so excited to make unforgettable memories this summer!

Warm Regards,
Emily Mulhern
Camp Supervisor

Jim Moreland - Director

Hello! My name is Jim and this is going to be my 3rd year as director and 8th overall with Diller. I am beyond excited to spend another summer with the Diller Blind Home this summer. I graduated from Penn State after majoring in elementary education and minoring in special education. During the school year, I am a 3rd grade teacher in the Spring-Ford Area School District. The best part of this job is being able to provide the connections and bonds that this camp provides. A lot of our campers (and staff) leave their time at Diller with life-long friends. Outside of camp, I enjoy traveling, going to the beach, and am an avid Cowboys, Sixers, and Phillies fan. I also enjoy golfing or kayaking during most of my free time throughout the warm months. It’s been a pleasure being able to spend my summers down the shore in such a welcoming community and working with such a fantastic staff and enthusiastic campers. 

Lily Corrigan – Assistant Director

Hi! My name is Lily and this will be my third summer working at the Diller Home! The past two summers I spent at Diller I was a boys counselor and this upcoming summer I am super excited to take the a new position and be Assistant Director! Some of my favorite activities at Diller include beach days, ice cream nights, and the fireworks on the 4th of July! In 2021, I graduated from Chestnut Hill College with a bachelors degree in Special Education/Elementary Education where I played lacrosse as well! I am currently a Special Education teacher and currently teaching Elementary/Middle School Life Skills/Autistic Support. During my free time I love running and CrossFit, going to the beach, and spending time with friends and family!
