Stephanie headshotAlley’s House fall semester starts the week of August 24th and as we start back to school we’re pleased to share that Stephanie Shavers Jones will join the team as Program Supervisor.

Stephanie joins us after almost four years working for the Department of Family and Protective Services as an Investigator for Child Protective Services and two years with Health and Human Services as an Eligibility Specialist. She earned her Bachelors of Art in Criminal Justice with a minor in Sociology.

Stephanie was born in Texarkana, TX. She was raised by her father, a U.S. army veteran, and mother a U.S. Army civilian worker who made several tours to Kuwait, Iraq, and Afghanistan. Stephanie’s older brother followed in their parents’ footsteps and become a U.S. civilian worker and served time overseas. Stephanie’s passion for impacting the lives of children and families may be a product of her childhood as her parents were foster parents in addition to caring for their small town community, church, and country. Stephanie currently resides in Balch Springs, TX with her husband, son, and puppy named Caesar.

Stephanie is excited to join the Alley’s House team and shares that she wants to make a difference in the lives of people that she meet, which is why she choose a career path that would allow her to do so.  We welcome Stephanie to the agency and know that with her background, motivation, and rapport with young women and children that she will be a great asset and support system to our young mothers.
