Sheneya Johnson

My name is Sheneya Johnson and I grew up in Springfield, MA. Although I have many interests not related to this field of work, I have spent the last 10 years working with youth in residential homes, Social Emotional behavioral Support classrooms and as a Family support Specialist working directly with Families connecting them to resources in their community and supporting them with parenting and bonding with child.  This work is important for me because I know how people can lack access, support, and stability in their homes. Now, being the Intake and Outreach Coordinator for Square One’s Family Service department, I am able to find new resources, and re-connect with current and past resources to better assist the community I have lived in for most of my life. I am a mother to two amazing, smart boys 9 and 4 that have been silent (and loud) orchestrators in my development as an adult. In life, we should never stop learning.
