Social Work Assistant
Tiffany is drawn to working with nonprofit organizations whose mission is to promote justice in low-income communities and provide services that connect people with opportunities that ultimately enhance their quality of life. She currently works on the Social Work unit where she actively seeks partnership with community-based providers to better address the out of court needs of our clients such as addiction, substance abuse, mental health, homelessness and coping with incarceration. More importantly, she makes referrals with a mindset that our client’s involvement in a program will reduce the likelihood of future criminal justice contact. Her team also highlights the importance of both oral and written advocacy.
She obtained her Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice from St. Francis College in 2015. At St. Francis College she was an active member of the Criminal Justice Club and was elected Vice President of the club her senior year. As Vice President, she was required to organize and facilitate events for the student body. Some of their most meaningful events that she coordinated were Know your Rights workshops, Stop and Frisk: Dos and Don’ts, poverty alleviation initiatives, and several other on-campus events to raise awareness.
Tiffany is currently a MSW candidate at the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College.
