Melissa Hunte

As the Social Work Manager, I oversee Social Work Interns in the NY Affiliate, providing supervision, and implementing/ administering the Social Emotional Learning Curriculum in NY.

I have been dedicated to servicing underserved populations in NYC. Since graduating from Howard University with my MSW in 2015, I have worked with parolees- providing holistic trauma informed case management services. I then moved on to work with individuals who are part of the NYC Shelter system providing advocacy, medication, referrals, and trauma informed care services.

I am passionate about advocating for underserved individuals at all levels and enjoy providing one on one counseling.
