Administrative and Grants Assistant
Linh Pham most recently worked as the interim executive director and CIVIC Program coordinator with the Delaware Valley branch office of Boat People, SOS, a Vietnamese American national organization that works to empower, equip, and organize Vietnamese individuals and communities in their pursuit of liberty and dignity. In her four years with the organization, she had the pleasure of providing advice, application assistance, and learning support to the Vietnamese-speaking communities of Philadelphia and southern New Jersey on matters related to the US naturalization process and voter education. Wearing several other hats in the office, she also served as a Navigator in a city-wide effort lead by refugee/immigrant community-serving groups to enroll Philadelphia refugee/immigrant residents into a health insurance coverage plan under the Affordable Care Act. Linh was a VIET fellow with the Asian American Pacific Islander in Philanthropy organization learning about Agent Orange and its effects on communities in and around Central Vietnam prior to joining BPSOS. Children of Vietnam was her host organization for this experience while she was in the country. Most recently, she was a volunteer with the Greensboro Senior Center and its ESL citizenship classes for elder refugee students. Linh is very excited to continue to grow and develop as a community-oriented person of service with Children of Vietnam once more. She looks forward to making the acquaintance of the rest of COV’s executive board and staff members in the near future.
