Social Workers on the Front Line

Our very own Fia Sarmi, social worker at the Catholic Charities Brooklyn Community Center shares what it means to advocate for her clients and how the Neediest Cases Fund has helped transform their lives. Featured in The New York Times, Fia is one of many caring case workers on the front line making a difference. “I wasn't born in a fortunate family. I actually came from a very third world country, from the poorest country in Southeast Asia,” said Fia. “Therefore I know I can relate to each one of my clients and where they are coming from.”
