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.
