SHADE – Safe Housing and Directed Empowerment

It was such a pleasure to meet and photograph Sherrie. Sherrie is the director of SHADE, and originally wanted a head and shoulder portrait. After spending some time with her and listening to her story, I felt a head and shoulder portrait just didn’t show her caring nature. Sherrie choose both of these images, but I think the second one really show’s her personality. To me it’s like we are just sitting across the table having a coffee. Professional but casual.

What is Shade?

SHADE is a community of passionate and skilled people working together for and with immigrant women and their children to reclaim the birthright to live free from abuse. It is a community that supports immigrant women and their children as they reshape their destiny through healing work, family bonding, and the re-building of healthy relationships with one another.  SHADE became a registered non-profit in January 2014. 

For more information on SHADE or to read more about Sherrie check out her website.
