I was honored to be celebrated as a 'Shero" amongst seven trailblazing women at the 2017 Women's Choice Awards Show; Alicia Garza, Brittany Packnett, Carmen Perez, Dr. Knatokie Ford, Dr. Yvonne Cagle, Miki Agrawal, and Reshma Saujani.

It was a wonderful evening celebrating women coming together to forge new paths for the next generation. In the two other categories Emma Watson and Julie Taymor were celebrated among many other inspiring women. Kathy Griffin honored Sharon Stone with a combination of raw wit and warmth. Sharon is now kindly donating furniture & homewares to A Sense of Home. YES!

I was so thrilled Yolanda from A Sense of Home was able to join me and witness all of these remarkable women in one room.

Meredith Vieira was the host and spoke about the importance of the inaugural awards ceremony on the Today Show http://www.today.com/video/meredith-vieira-opens-up-about-hosting-the-women-s-choice-award-show-939532355916

The Real Heroes Are The Youth We Serve

The most exquisite part of A Sense of Home is that the remarkable youth who were once the recipients of ASOH —are now the leaders of this movement. Our 7 employees are former foster youth.Once seen as victims, they are now agents of change. If anyone, in this country has a right to be mad as hell it is these kids. They have been violently abused, abandoned, and passed off to one institution to the other and are further marginalized by their race and sexual orientation. Through their ability to survive against all odds, they are determined to channel those unique skills to be the change they seek. They are walking the walk and lighting up hope with every step they take. They are my heroes.
