About Shaianne
Foster Care Assessor

I truly love working with Encourage’s foster children as well as those who have felt a calling to become foster parents. I enjoy interacting with our families, gathering updates on the positives in their lives and helping them to overcome adverse situations. I’m excited to be part of a team that helps strengthen families—whether that be children finding their forever families or hearing how foster families and our staff have touched the lives of birth parents and the children are now able to return home.
