Shequila facilitates workshops for women and youth. Her target audience is single mothers. Her goal is to emotionally and mentally develop mothers, with the aim of improving mother-child positive bonding, and increasing the mother’s involvement in their child’s education.
Shequila began her servant-leader advocacy by providing resources for at-risk youth. She pivoted to focus on single mothers (and often aging grandparents) when she realized the youth were going back into toxic homes. Shequila founded Determine Now, a local non-profit (501c3), to help families create positive impacts intergenerationally. Determine Now believes a strong community support system is vital for families to succeed.
