Meet Sheba Brown

Sheba was first introduced to Humanim through attending a parent engagement financial workshop at Tench Tilghman elementary school, where her daughter attends and is enrolled in Humanim’s Elev8 after school program. Unemployed at the time, Sheba was interested in returning to work but faced several barriers, including lack of transportation, health issues, and debt. With the help of Humanim’s Family Support Services (FSS), Sheba enrolled in Humanim’s EARN culinary career training program, where she received hands-on culinary training and earned her ServeSafe and NRF Customer Service certifications, in partnership with Moveable Feast.

After successfully completing her training, Humanim’s culinary social enterprise City Seeds hired Sheba to work in their production kitchen. After a few months Sheba was promoted to work in a new café at the Annie E. Casey Foundation office headquarters in Baltimore, where her food and customer service skills were described by customers as friendly, welcoming, and professional. Sheba excelled in her position while continuing to work toward her financial and savings goals with the help of Humanim’s FSS and Match Savings program. The training and experience she gained through working with City Seeds became a springboard to higher skilled hospitality positions, and Sheba has recently accepted a new supervisory position with another highly regarded Baltimore arts institution with increased wages. She has stated that she is grateful to both City Seeds and Humanim for helping her forge a career path, and is sad to leave.

Sheba’s story illustrates the success of workforce programming that incorporates a synergy of training, supports, and community partnership. At Humanim, we recognize that every human being has potential and the right to economic opportunity, despite what social and financial barriers they may face. We structure our programming to alleviate these barriers while providing concrete employment avenues through our community partnerships and social enterprise division. We are excited to see what the future holds for Sheba!
