Solving Legal Issues That Impact Health

 

In 2024, I am looking forward to assisting our clients heal from the traumatic effects of poverty. As a paralegal, I am speaking with clients to identify their legal issues, consulting our staff attorneys for possible solutions for our clients, and advocating for our clients everyday.

Supporting Families Through Nurse-Home Visiting

We’ve had many families waiting to be connected with our home visiting programs, and with new nurses joining NNCC, I’m excited to see the impact we’ll make to the families who will have access to our resources. I’m excited to help our nurses in making a difference for families in Philadelphia. Our nurses handle a lot, and I like to think that the support I provide helps make their jobs a  bit easier. They take care of the clients and the Admin team takes care of them.

One goal that I would love and hope that NNCC can achieve this year, especially with PA-AC, is being able to potentially expand the mentorship program to more students beyond Southeastern Pennsylvania.
