          So what was on Ms. Sheppard’s mind?  Community development, the role of a Certified Peer Specialist in Re-Entry, addressing underlying factors which deter our children from learning and create underperforming schools using a holistic approach, and the need for individuals who have been incarcerated to undergo a period of “psychological debriefing"!



                 Through HATT, a community outreach entity, Ms. Sheppard assists marginalized individuals with obtaining the tools they need to overcome barriers and realize their full potential through personal development and accessing requisite resources. Ms. Sheppard’s career in Social and Human Services has  spanned 21 years in the areas of Substance Use Disorders, Behavioral/Mental Health, Youth & Adult Justice System, Peer Support, Outreach, Advocacy, Chronic Disease Self-Management, Community Inclusion, and Life & Personal Development. Sheppard, who holds a Behavioral Health and Human Services degree from Community College of Philadelphia and certifications in Peer Support and Community Inclusions, has held numerous positions over the span of her 21 year career which include, but are not limited to, a Peer Specialist, HIV Outreach Representative, Substance Use Counselor, Youth Counselor and Case Manager. She has worked in group homes, outpatient programs, integrated medical clinics, religious and non-profit organizations, and has consulted for churches, non-profits, and international institutions and entities.



          Ms. Sheppard is a member of the American Association of Christian Counselors, Philadelphia Re-Entry Coalition, and the Philadelphia Community of Leaders.

Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working
with? I'm looking to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
The reason I ask is because your design and style seems
different then most blogs and I'm looking for something
unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic
but I had to ask!
