Christine Callahan - Why I am Proud to Work Here. Proud to Give Here.

“I am so proud to work at the University of Maryland School of Social Work (UMSSW) with the Financial Social Work Initiative (FSWI). I arrived on campus in 2012 and learned so much from all my colleagues and friends at the School. As a researcher focused, on financial well-being and financial stability I see the huge financial, medical, interpersonal, and psychological toll COVID has taken on many communities, particularly communities of color. These communities, who were struggling to begin with amidst injustice, inequity, and rising income inequity really underscore the grim nature of this pandemic. However, I find hope in all the work done by my colleagues at FSWI, UMSSW, and UMB. Their combined contributions of time, talent, and treasure are making a difference!”
