I am a Worcester homeowner, mother and grandmother, with proud roots as an Afro-Latina from Puerto Rico. I have worked for over 30 years on the front lines of service as director of housing at Friendly House, as a health outreach worker, coordinator of a high school graduation project, director of emergency services at Catholic Charities, and now director of the Resiliency Center at Worcester Community Action Council.
My career is focused on helping people succeed through education and work. Our community is stronger because of the compassion and respect shown to the most vulnerable among us -- newcomers, working families, youth of color, low income elders, and those who live on the margins of society. I will bring these same values and priorities to the Worcester City Council.
