“Through my work at Sapna I am able to help the women in my community. So for me, Sapna isn’t just a place where our community members can realize their dreams, it is also a place where I can realize one of my dreams as well.” Nahida, Community Health Worker


Why Work for us?

At Sapna, we see ourselves as part of the community we serve, looking to preserve the culture, while supporting vulnerable populations and tackling issues that push our people into isolation, poor health, and poverty.  We are committed to working towards building a just and equitable society that celebrates the strength and beauty of its immigrant communities.
