As a longtime residence of Paterson, helping people has always been Sharonda’s passion. Sharonda’s work in the community began in 2003 with the Paterson Mustang Football Organization Parent Committee. In April 2003 she began working with men and women recovering from drug and alcohol addiction as well as co-occurring disorders. Muture Sisters was founded in 2009; in which, she began feeding the unhoused population, providing care packages and supportive services in the City of Paterson. Sharonda has worked in the Human Service filed for 21 years.  Sharonda is currently employed at Paterson Counseling Center as Primary Substance Abuse Counselor.  In September 2015 Sharonda successfully became a Certified Alcohol & Drug Counselor. She has also received countless awards for her tireless time and efforts to her community and other non-profit organizations.

Sharonda is a member of Grace Chapel Baptist Church of Paterson, under the Pastorate of

Gregory L. Wilson.

Sharonda feels that not only will Muture Sisters be an asset to the City of Paterson, but by combining her organization’s efforts with community leaders and other organizations, there will be a way to break this cycle of despair. She strives to give women and men hope for their future on a daily basis.

Sharonda's passion is to help restore women and men self-worth!

Sharonda's motto: Homeless Not Helpless, But Still Human!!! Let's Love on our unhoused women and men until they can love on themselves....
