Caitlin Becker earned her M.S.W. from Fordham University’s Graduate School of Social Service in 2010. Her internships at both Abraham House, a community-based Alternative to Incarceration Program, and Covenant House, a shelter for homeless teens and young adults, fueled her interest in working with individuals and families affected by both the criminal justice and family court systems. Prior to joining The Bronx Defenders, Caitlin worked with undergraduates at Fordham University’s Dorothy Day Center for Service and Justice, where she connected students with volunteer opportunities in community-based organizations in the Bronx, and collaborated with her colleagues and students to advance the social justice mission of the university. She served as a Jesuit volunteer and worked with homeless youth in San Diego, California, following her graduation from Boston College in 2005 with a degree in English and Communication Studies.
