Residential Living Programs
Dear Devoted Community Patron,
My name is Shane Shepherd and I come from a broken home; struck by poverty, drug addiction and therefore neglect. As a result; I turned to the streets, dropped out of school and became a statistic. By the grace of God the statistical category I fell into was being young, black under educated and incarcerated. I was very fortunate to escape the statistical category that so many thought I would fall into which was an early grave.
However; along my path I came across some information that caused me to change my course of life. I gained knowledge of Self, entered into programming like substance-abuse, GED job readiness, The foundations of business vocational course, and long distance dads (A parenting class that would give me a chance at being a better father)
With this new knowledge of self and the knowledge gained from programming, my life changed dramatically upon release!!! No more was I criminal minded, shifting blame, irresponsible or apathetic towards life. I was now bold in my endeavors and confident that I AM somebody. I became a man, a father, a taxpayer and a pillar in my community.
