Project HELP's 4th Annual Community Begins At Home Breakfast
Join us as we hear from our keynote speaker, Shenandoah Chefalo.
Each attendee will receive a copy of Shenandoah Chefalo's book, Garbage Bag Suitcase.
This will be an inspiring morning you won't want to miss!
Shenandoah Chefalo is a survivor and alumni of the foster
care system. Plagued and embarrassed by her name,
made worse by a nomadic
childhood that made it impossible to build lasting relationships, Shenandoah developed a tough
skin at an early age. Along the way she learned to deal with disappointment,
discomfort, overcome adversity and accurately gauge people, qualities that have helped her to
succeed. Shenandoah is the co-founder of the #4600andCounting, a grass-roots
movement to bring awareness and change to the missing youth of foster care and
is also a faculty member and trainer at The Center for Trauma Resilient
Communities. Her award-winning book, Garbage
Bag Suitcase, recounts her journey to overcome her desolate childhood and
also presents grass-root solutions on how to revamp the broken foster care
