A safe space for foster children
Our purpose is to provide assistance for foster children with much needed support, resources and programs. Starting from the initial removal process to aging out of foster care, improving their quality of life outcomes.
Cheryl Gyant, the foundress of the Shaniya Rose Community Development Corporation began the organization to keep children first as they make their way through the difficulties of the foster-care system. Her engaging personality has made her a dynamic sales woman in the hospitality industry, but her personal convictions would not let her sit idle when her niece Shaniya Rose was born. She personally advocated for her niece, and began to discover how her voice could strengthen other children in the foster care system who may have otherwise remained voice-less. Her passion and drive is not unfounded, as she was born into the foster care system herself. She understands how love and support can significantly change the outcomes of young children, and how being adopted into a loving family likely built a foundation of her own success. She is dedicated to continuing on the legacy started by her mother Valerie Jane, who only wanted children to feel love and support. Her positive and doting spirit has always made her a cornerstone of her own family. After having her own child as a single mother, she persevered through college, and turned her infectious personality and drive into a successful career in sales. It is this strong ambition of hustle, sacrifice, and hard-work, coupled with passion, love, and personal convictions that make her an ideal founder. Her unique circumstances, zest for positivity and love will propel the foundation in a way that find specific results-driven outcomes for children who live in the foster care system. Seeing a need for energetic nonprofit work in the foster care community, we formed our organization to provide sensible solutions. We consistently strive towards ways to help foster children and families cope and maintain a safe, happy and healthy life.
We focus on making the maximum positive effort for our foster care children and families. Bridging the financial gap for foster children, families and agencies one community at a time is our mission. Our members and volunteers provide the momentum that helps us affect change. We work to provide solutions that make a long-lasting difference.
