Maggie Potter

Social Worker in the Family Advocacy Unit, Community Legal Services

Maggie is a "local" South Jersey native, and is thrilled to now consider Philadelphia her home. She and her husband and new baby live in West Philadelphia where they love meeting neighbors, spending time in Clark Park, exploring coffee shops and restaurants, and hosting the occasional house concert. She has dual Masters Degrees in Social Work and Social Policy (MSW, MSSP) from the University of Pennsylvania. She has worked in the legal services and social services fields with children and families in New England, the Philadelphia region, and internationally. She loves her current job as Social Worker in the Family Advocacy Unit at Community Legal Services, where she works to keep low income families together and receive needed services and advocates for policy changes that affect those families.
