Testimonials

“Three things in my life saved me from going down a path of misery and depression:  my mother, God, and the staff (at Headway)…With each struggle I face now, I am filled with the courage and skills to take a healthy approach to fixing whatever it is that is I am having trouble with.”

Shamra joined Headway in January, 2014 and has worked in the human services field since 2001, including working in the MN Department of Corrections, providing intensive in-home services to children and also working as a Chemical Dependency Specialist. As an Infant and Parent Specialist, she assists expectant mothers and new parents in having healthy, enjoyable pregnancies and supports them in creating positive relationships with their children through their parenting journey. “Through education and role modeling,” she says, “I know that these parents and families can live effective, positive lives within their communities.”
