"The Opportunity Center is a no-barriers shelter meaning that they serve anyone regardless of age, gender, religion, documentation status, etc. I worked primarily with single men and women who were experiencing homelessness and connected them with resources from housing to mental health services to education. I LOVED my job this year. [Serving at the OC] would be an amazing experience [for anyone] interested in social work, criminal justice, psychology, or anyone just looking for work experience that is new, challenging and different each day. The community at the OC is incredibly welcoming and has encouraged me to really get out of my comfort zone and immerse myself in the justice work that they engage with every day."

"As the coordinator of IFCLA's ICE Accompaniment Program, I have had the opportunity to manage and grow a program while diving into the importance of solidarity and presence with immigrants who are entrenched in the US immigration system. IFCLA has been a space through which I feel valued for my work, comfortable asking questions and learning, and able to connect more fully with justice issues in St. Louis."
