Nancy Candea on Serving Diverse Populations

Executive Director Rob Schware talks with Nancy Candea for The Huffington Post Blog on her experiences in serving marginalized populations ranging from incarcerated women to at-risk youth.

“In my youth, I used drugs and food addictions to deal with the tough emotions of growing up in a family where physical and emotional abuse were a norm and, well — that is the easier stuff to talk about. I also experienced some domestic violence in my adult life, and it feels like my yoga practice literally carried me at a time when I needed great courage to make changes in our lives. That has inspired me to do the outreach work that I do.”
