Steph Lomangino, LMSW (they/them) is a Project Director at Family Voices. Steph believes that all children and their families inherently deserve dignity and autonomy, especially when navigating social systems to meet their needs. As a native of an urban area in Connecticut, a first-generation college graduate, and a queer, non-binary, mad/neurodivergent White person, Steph brings lived experience that has propelled them to make change for their communities. Their drive for change also led them to focus their graduate coursework around principles of trauma-informed care and policy issues that shape the sociopolitical environment that children and families live in. Steph has held numerous roles centered around child health and community well-being at the state and national levels, including roles at the Help Me Grow National Center as well as the Child Health and Development Institute of Connecticut. Steph is a graduate of the University of Connecticut and holds a Bachelor of Arts in Communications and Political Science as well as a Master of Social Work degree.
