The mission of Phipps Neighborhoods includes working toward a New York City in which no one is caught in the cycle of poverty. There is nothing more rewarding than knowing that our efforts are doing exactly that!
Immaculada Moronta, a recent Career Network: Healthcare graduate, began working as the Administrative Assistant for the Institute for Family Health – with a starting salary of $40,000!
Immaculada grew up and was educated in the Dominican Republic. Unfortunately, she had a hard time finding employment when she moved to the Bronx because her education credentials weren’t recognized. Unable to find a job, she was forced to bounce around between family members’ homes until Career Network: Healthcare helped her overcome this difficult reality.
She successfully completed the 13-week training program which includes job shadowing and externship experience. With support from the Phipps Neighborhoods team, she successfully secured employment in the healthcare field.
We congratulate Immaculada and wish her luck as she begins her career. Special thanks to the Career Network: Healthcare team, including Shakeisha Ravenell, Jenine Cruz, Jennifer Tausig and Monique De La Oz for their dedication to this program, the participants, and the graduates. We are confident that all of our Career Network: Healthcare graduates will obtain job placement directly related to the healthcare field.
