President/Executive Director, Monica Shaw
As Co-founder of Deliverance Children’s Ministry my vision is to provide a space for youth to call their second home. Like the ancient African proverb says, “it takes a village to raise a child” so with that same mission DCM strives to create a safe haven where youth are engaged in structural programs in academia, enrichment career development workshops and extra curricular activities. DCM in partnership with Joys in Teaching are working together to expand programs in Jersey City to youth in underserved communities, closing the educational opportunity gap and creating community change agents. We invite you to join our village!
Cassandra Arnold is Grenadian-born, but raised in Brooklyn. She has resided in Jersey City since 2007 and was introduced to Deliverance Children’s Ministry through the Jersey City Service portal in April 2018. Cassandra has engaged in mentorship and civil service programs since high school, and quite a bit of time has passed since then. As an auditor, business analyst and performance evaluator of a global accounting firm from 1998-2015, she was charged with analyzing complex business processes; digesting large volumes of government regulations, and industry frameworks, specifically for government and nonprofit clients. In 2015, Cassandra decided to transition to a career in the nonprofit sector and she enrolled in Rutgers University Newark – School of Public Affairs and Administration. In May 2017, she obtained her Master’s degree in Public Administration with a concentration in Nonprofit Management. She also obtained a graduate certificate in Educational Technology from the Rutgers University Graduate School of Education.
Her vision is to support educators and community leaders in the development of programs that empower youth in college and career readiness and civic engagement.
