Vice President of Community-Based Services
Soraya Borja serves as the Vice President of Community-Based Services and has been with the organization since 2006. Soraya’s passion for social services began at a young age. Growing up in Ecuador, Soraya was aware of social injustices and opportunity gaps. Thus, she started her career by joining the Ecuadorian Youth Red Cross. From there Soraya continued to support underserved communities in Latin American and relocated to Puerto Rico where she pursued her degree at Inter-American University. She then moved to New York and studied International Relations at the City University of New York. When she and her family moved to Virginia, Soraya found an opportunity to continue her work with immigrant families at Second Story. Since joining the organization Soraya has managed the Culmore Safe Youth Project, the Culmore Teen Center, and now she manages Second Story in the Community. When she’s not at work, Soraya enjoys spending time with her family and volunteering.
