Meet Ashanti Dampier. Ashanti works in the Therapeutic Foster Care and Adoption Division as a Family Specialist. Ashanti is originally from Jackson, Mississippi. She came to Southern Christian Services this past June after moving back from Missouri.
Ashanti loves spending time with family and hanging out with her dog. She works out in her spare time.
Ashanti states, “I work for Southern Christian Services because I want to be at a workplace who shares my beliefs, and values people the way I do. Southern Christian Services has been modeling this for years, and I wanted to be a part of the impact that this agency is making on Mississippi.”
While working at Southern Christian Services, Ashanti trains foster parents. This gives Ashanti the opportunity in which to help people see who they are, so they can better help our children and be patient with the whole process.
Ashanti says, “My favorite part of SCS are the individuals I get a chance to serve and the ones who help me serve (our staff).”
Ashanti’s favorite quote is, “My history is not my full story.”
“Treat every person with love and grace because interactions impact thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.”
