2012 Equal Justice Works Fellow, Nicholas Levenhagen
My passion for serving the elder population comes from my experience as a Home Health Aide and Caregiver. Through this work, I witnessed the emotional and financial struggles individuals face trying to plan for the later stages of life and obtain needed care. Personal experiences with the Holocaust survivor community has fueled my commitment to ensure that these resilient individuals are provided with support and services that will allow them to live out their lives in peace and dignity.
Words to live by:
"Everybody can be great, because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve.... You don't have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love." ~Martin Luther King, Jr.
