Victoria Rodarte

Program Assistant

Victoria plays a key supporting role in the Fund’s Immigrant Rights and Education Equity programs.

Victoria assists the Fund’s Program Director for Immigrant Rights, Cathy Cha, in the day-to-day management of the Immigrant Rights program, supporting grantees to prepare and submit reports, answering their questions, and scheduling meetings and providing administrative support. Victoria plays a similar role in the Fund’s Education Equity program.

Before joining the Fund, Victoria worked at Catholic Charities of San Francisco, Marin and San Mateo counties. Her responsibilities there included working as the organization’s receptionist and providing program support for its Refugee and Immigrant Services program. A fluent Spanish speaker, Victoria also has worked as a legal assistant for an Oakland law firm specializing in tenant’s rights cases, and she volunteers as a translator for the San Francisco Pathways to Citizenship Initiative, which supports immigrants to complete the naturalization process.

Victoria has a bachelor’s degree in political science from U.C. Berkeley.  

Working on both immigration and education issues is a perfect fit for me. It’s an honor to be able to work with organizations that are expanding opportunities for people to achieve the American dream.
