The Salvation Army of Wake County announces the hiring of Shakeda Muldrow as Project CATCH coordinator. Project CATCH – Community Action Targeting Children who are Homeless – is a program of The Salvation Army and was established in 2011.
“I am excited to have Shakeda Muldrow as our new Salvation Army Project CATCH Coordinator,” said Katie Gonzalez, director of social ministries. “She brings a lot of energy to the program with a strong sense of community engagement.
“This is a great time for Project CATCH and we will continue to service and to meet the needs of families and children experiencing homelessness in Wake County. I think The Salvation Army Project CATCH program has a bright future under Shakeda’s guidance.”
Ms. Muldrow has 10 years of valuable experience serving low-income and marginalized populations. Her service career began shortly after graduation at a transitional housing program where she coordinated workshops, identified community resources and supported displaced young men who aged out of the foster care system, to become independent and self-sufficient.
Ms. Muldrow also served with the AmeriCorps National Service Program as a tutor and as volunteer and program coordinator for the Black Child Development Institute of Greensboro, a United Way partner agency, which targets youth deemed at-risk of academic failure. Upon receiving her master’s degree, she reconnected service with the homeless population, serving as case manager at Family Promise of Wake County.
During much of her career, Ms. Muldrow has provided direct service to families and individuals who are low-income, experiencing homelessness, and/or living with behavioral or mental health challenges. Her work has been transcendent, and uses a strengths-based approach and is driven to meet people where they are, helping them to reach their full potential. Her work is guided with the simple adage, “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
