Case Management Aide
Sean Campbell is currently serving as a Case Manager Aide through the Americorps "Equal Heart Program." After completing his Bachelor's Degree in Social Work, Sean decided to leave the Mitten State, Michigan, and embrace the Heat of Texas! Sean plans to utilize his time in Texas by gaining real world experience in his field, strengthening his work ethic, and learning as much as he can before he makes the long journey back to Michigan to start Graduate School. In the past, he has worked primarily with youth, so working at the Trinity Center will be a great new learning process for him. He feels compelled to develop an understanding of the harsh realities people experiencing homelessness have to endure and common impediments that obstruct their path out. During Sean's days off, you can catch him paddle boarding on Lady Bird lake, reading comics, doing yoga, or playing volleyball in the park!
