Cashlynn Huynh

Administrative Assistant and Intake Specialist

WHAT DO YOU DO AT SENIORLAW CENTER?

My administrative duties support with implementing training programs for the Victim Services staff, Victim Services outreach efforts to identify victims, and coordinating Victim Services project meetings. My intake duties support assuming front desk responsibilities such as emergency walk-ins and updating our case management system.

WHY DO YOU WORK AT SENIORLAW CENTER?

This work leaves resonance with me as someone who has witnessed immigrant and refugee elder abuse due to lack of English proficiency. Financial illiteracy, English illiteracy, and lack of language to self-advocate are sites for elder abuse. SeniorLAW’s outreach efforts aim to support these vulnerable members and provide the services to advocate.

HIGHLIGHT OF YOUR WORK AT SENIORLAW CENTER?

I am the first-line of support for victims. I provide organizational referrals or schedule time for elders to meet with our attorneys.

OTHER LEADERSHIP POSITIONS AND WAYS YOU GIVE BACK?

I am a member of the Diversity and Inclusion Committee.
