Bi-Lingual Family Advocate

Always an advocate for hope, Sylvia Kershaw joined Mission Kids in 2014 after many years working as an advocate at Montgomery County Victim Services Center. As a part of the Mission Kids team, she provides support, refers the appropriate medical or counseling help as needed and educates families on the judicial system. She believes in the vision of Mission Kids, how it helps children and their families and is determined to help bring back the hope and peace of mind that they deserve. Although Sylvia has earned a certificate for 65 hours in sexual assault training as well as a 2014 mandated reporting certificate, she finds that her pride stems from something much simpler: making a difference and helping others.

Sylvia is also bilingual and works with many of our Non-English speaking families.
