Welcome #GandaraAtWork episode 3! This week meet Lavagn Claudio, senior family partner at our Community Service Agency (CSA) division.

Lavagn was born and raised in Springfield. A hard worker and dedicated to giving back to his community, Lavagn worked through school and up the Gándara ladder to get where he is today.

He enjoys infusing street art and urban art with his day-to-day responsibilities. Take a look around his office and you’ll find no shortage of comics, hip hop, paintings, and sketches. One of his favorite aspects of Gándara is that the organization lets him express himself the way he chooses.

His passion for arts and culture helps him connect with Gándara clients, especially youths. Lavagn is always looking for ways to improve his community, his neighbors, his peers, and himself.
