Heal Thrive Dream Guest: Shenandoah Chefalo

By Karen Robinson

Heal Thrive Dream 

Shenandoah Chefalo, is an award-winning author, sought-after speaker, and trauma-informed coach and consultant who penned the book, “Garbage Bag Suitcase” about her young life in the foster care system.

Shenandoah experienced a dysfunctional childhood with neglectful, drug and alcohol-addicted parents. This eventually landed her in the foster system where she endured numerous moves in the middle of the night with just minutes to pack, multiple changes in schools, hunger, cruelty, and loneliness.

After some research, she discovered that there were nearly 400,000 children in the foster care system each day in the United States. Out of those children, nearly 61% would age out of the system without having a place to live, 50% would end up incarcerated within 2 years of aging out, and almost 80% of people on death row are former foster alumni.
