Sarah Ocampo

Director, Family Support & Education Candelen

What makes Candelen's mission meaningful to you?

Helping others makes me happy. As a product of a single-parent household, a minority, an immigrant to this country, and a parent to two young children this means that every day, through our work, I can help and impact the outcome of others from similar walks of life.

What motivates you?

Creating and implementing new programs and seeing first-hand the impact on families. The ability to research and learn from our work, respond to challenges, needs and continuously find new ways to work with communities and influence others.
