Alysse Litteberry, MSW/MPH in BCHS in April 2019
"After hearing about the journeys of women and spending time at the shelter, homelessness to me seems like the intersection of all social problems: poverty, mental illness, underinsurance, domestic violence, substance abuse... I feel very motivated to help these women, but I also feel like my work will never be done. I think after this experience, I am more motivated to work towards alleviating these problems in my career. Even if I can't 'solve' homelessness, I think I have the power to make things a little better for some people."
Littleberry's project was Reducing Recidivism at Bethlehem Haven's Emergency Shelter in which she created an internal report and documents for staff to use with clients.
