“Through my work at Sapna I am able to help the women in my community. So for me, Sapna isn’t just a place where our community members can realize their dreams, it is also a place where I can realize one of my dreams as well.” Nahida, Community Health Worker


Why Work for us?

At Sapna, we see ourselves as part of the community we serve, looking to preserve the culture, while supporting vulnerable populations and tackling issues that push our people into isolation, poor health, and poverty.  We are committed to working towards building a just and equitable society that celebrates the strength and beauty of its immigrant communities. As a community-based organization that works on the ground, Sapna staff are able to directly impact the lives of the women and families we serve.

Our Work Culture

Sapna’s staff is a tight-knit group that believes in supporting and lifting each other up. We are passionate about the work we do and are dedicated to the fight for social justice. We believe in building community, whether it’s over birthday cake, a cup of chai, or a three-legged race.

Sapna staff, management, and Board of Directors are reflective of the population we serve, made up of South Asians, with fluency in English, Bengali, Hindi, Sylheti, and Urdu, as well as proficiency in Spanish, Arabic, and French.
