I am Social Worker in the BIG APPLE. Working in New York City is surely not for the faint at heart. I have been working with families for over 8-years. My work involves counseling formally homeless families to live positive and productive lives. This includes connecting them to vocational and educational resources. . I’ve completed my master's degree and am currently learning American Sign Language. I have an open door policy and am in contact constantly with my tenants to assure follow up of their goals and pursuit of their dreams.Seeing tenants complete their programs, enroll in school, or stick to a budget is the favorite part of what I do. It brings me joy to make sure others come to their full potential and by doing so I come to mine.

Went back to school to support my son. A laptop and printer will help me land a job.

Being able to provide for my son means the world to me. In a few months I'll be graduating, but I'm struggling without the right technology. More
