Every day is an opportunity to help someone change their life.

Meet Kathia Canlas. Kathia began helping others at an early age. In her native Manila, Philippines Kathia helped organize community events and outreach programs while still in high school. Focused on Metro Manila Kathia assisted with education and other resources to families in need. Now Kathia brings those skills and experiences to the OCLF as a Youth Case Manager.

“I get to meet different individuals almost every day and learn something new. And hopefully make a difference to somebody’s life by providing the resources and assistance they may need.”

Born and raised in Manila, Philippines, Kathia earned a BS in Psychology and AB Guidance Counseling from St. Scholatica’s College in Manila. When not hard at work spreading the word about available services and helping others Kathia enjoys arts and crafts, painting, baking and cooking. Perhaps we can put her in charge of the next big labor barbecue? Either way, the OCLF is happy to have Kathia as part of the excellent, and growing, team fighting to make build wealth and prosperity for working people.
