Who is Mari?
Mari is a highly effective, bi-lingual case manager for City Impact’s Transformation Works program. For the past six years she worked with high-risk youth and their families. Mari is trained in evidence-based practices; Street Outreach, Case Management, Triple P Parenting, Motivational Interviewing, and Health Navigation.
Mari has a passion to make a difference in young people’s lives, she is stern yet empathetic – which is a difficult balance at times. In the words of one of our students, “Through our time together I have come to realize what really has value in my life. Not to mention that I wouldn’t have realized it on my own, but you were there with me every step of the way.”
She is also a mother of three daughters and they are her strength and to always give her best.
