Sarah Vargas excitedly joined the GAIN team as the MSW Intern for the academic year. She expects to complete her studies in May of 2017, earning a Master’s of Social Work from Georgia State University. Previously, Sarah worked as a case management intern with a Metro-Atlanta organization that provided social services to families and children experiencing abuse or neglect. It was that opportunity in which Sarah had contact with families of immigrant, refugee, and asylee status. She became interested in working with populations that experience unique hardships as they acclimate to American societal structures and systems and hopes to become more acquainted with resources available to these individuals and families. Sarah is eager to assist the staff at GAIN in several projects this year as well as be a promoter of the organization’s mission in the future.
