City Mission Welcomes Yauris Romero

Get to know our new Case Manager!

Q: What past experiences, personal or professional, connect to the work and values of City Mission Boston?

Romero: As a licensed social worker, I have worked for High Point Treatment Center, Department of Children and Families, and Community Counseling of Bristol County. In addition to my clinical experiences, I have a wide-range of knowledge in working with low-income minority families, children and adolescents. I have also worked in the research field, particularly focused on the areas of assessment and evaluations of different clinical interventions and the impact on children and their families from a Bio-psycho-social perspective.

Q: What is your new role at City Mission Boston, and what inspired you to join the team?

Romero: Bilingual (Spanish) Case Manager. What inspired me to join the team and the organization was due to their commitment for sponsoring systemic changes in public policies. I was also intrigued by their principals of raising awareness in issues of social justice in Boston.

Q: Tell us what motivates you to do what you do, and how do you plan to contribute to the mission of City Mission Boston?

Romero: What motivates me to do what I do, is my commitment to academic achievement, family, and community. Being raised by a single mother and seeing how the hardship of our social position set in, I came to understand the importance of social equality. Which has now translated into my purpose to empower and lead minority communities to achieve social equality. I plan to contribute to the mission of City Mission Boston by bringing my experiences in substance abuse treatment, child protective services, and in-home therapy will contribute to the agency’s’ clinical learning substantively.

Q: What do you enjoy doing when you are not working at City Mission?

Romero: I enjoy traveling and spending time with my love ones.
