Victor Monterrosa, Jr.
Staff Attorney, Youth Advocacy Center of Covenant House New Jersey
The importance of providing for the community and the less fortunate was instilled in Victor throughout his childhood growing up in Newark’s Ironbound neighborhood. As the Staff Attorney at the Youth Advocacy Center of Covenant House, he is now able to serve, educate and inspire homeless youth on their paths toward stability. (add the following to the end IF space allows: “Victor also organizes Newarkers around issues of housing and social justice. He currently serves as a member of Newark’s first Civilian Complaint Review Board.”)
