Natalie's Story

Social Worker Natalie Vilson joined our team in Haiti in 2018. In her role, Natalie functions as a coach for families and children, moving between the roles of both counselor and teacher, and she works alongside Haitian churches in their outreach to local families. In addition to studying social work, Natalie’s prior experience counseling, encouraging, and further psychologically supporting people living with HIV—a disease of shame in Haiti—equips her to serve, counsel, and nurture vulnerable families without judgement. When Natalie is not working, you may find her enjoying some of her favorite hobbies: dancing visiting the beach, or hanging out with friends.
