About Family Voices \ Our Team \ Sarah Candio
Associate Manager, Administrative Services
Sarah serves as Family Voices’ Associate Manager for Administrative Services and Assistant to the Director. With more than a decade of experience with research and advocacy work in disadvantaged communities, Sarah began nonprofit work with Partners In Health’s Right to Health Care program where she provided administrative and logistical support for a transnational team of healthcare advocates, and direct accompaniment for families accessing complex care and critical social supports. She has since gone on to gain more involved experience in nonprofit management, most recently at the Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti.
Sarah is a committed advocate for families struggling in the face of the incredible barriers dictated by race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, diagnosis, or immigration status. She holds a Master’s degree from Harvard Divinity School, where she focused on existential anthropology and got real with the challenges of her own privilege as an ally joining conversations about ‘whose human rights’ and ‘what is at stake’ in critical human rights movements. She is fluent in Haitian Creole, is a Department of Justice certified non-attorney immigration advocate, and is the mother of three rowdy children.
