elizabeth britova, project assistant, pro bono
Elizabeth Britova joined Catholic Charities in February 2021, as the project assistant for the pro bono team at the Immigration Legal Services Program. After graduating with a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Spanish and European literature from Moscow State University, she worked for four years at a non-profit organization in Moscow, dedicated to helping children with severe burn trauma. Once she immigrated and settled in the greater D.C. area, she set out to find work in a non-profit with a great cause, which brought her to Catholic Charities. Having recently gone through the immigration process herself and with an extensive background in charitable work, she aims to use her knowledge and abilities to assist the program and its beneficiaries in any way she can.
The generous support of Maryland Legal Services Corporation, Montgomery County, MD, and individual and law firm donors enables our Immigration Legal team to continue to offer in-depth comprehensive services to our clients. Thank you on our behalf and on behalf of the immigrants we serve.
