The Partnership for the Homeless

Welcome New Interns!

The PFTH welcomes our new interns from Denmark, Melanie and Anna!  While studying Social Work at The Metropolitan University College in Copenhagen, they are completing their field study at the Family Resource Center, located in East New York.  We are pleased to have them and excited that they bring a new perspective on social programs that the FRC and PFTH can learn from.

During their time here Anna and Melanie look forward to further understanding American social services and service delivery systems, comparing it to Danish social services; highlighting the social, political, and financial structures that differ between each countries approach to Social Work. Their goal is to combine everything they will learn, experience, and discuss during their time at FRC and in their studies by putting it all into practice in their future careers.  Additionally, Anna and Melanie look forward to expanding their English vocabulary to include all the “fun things that Americans say”.   

We at the FRC are excited to welcome them to the team for the semester!
