Patricia S. Phillips was first introduced to working with nonprofit agencies serving undervalued communities during her internship while in college.

Her role included conducting home visits, outreach within the community, advocacy for the women in the program, recruitment at medical centers to enroll women into the program and assisting in developing creative ways to keep the women and families engaged.
