Meet the Founder
Shamika Woumnm is the founder of Wilahmena's Place Inc., est. in June 2016. Ms. Woumnm has credited the start of the organization by overcoming her own adversities. Ms. Woumnm was a teenaged, single parent raising a son, eventually five children on her own.
Hardships and overcoming battles were commonplace for Shamika, so bringing these types of services to the forefront of her community with dignity all the while with discretion and anonymity of her clients are key focal points to the organization.
Ms. Woumnm has a strong passion for the work that she does in the communities that she services. Wilahmena's Place Corp. strongly focuses on underserved communities that are primarily located in the Metropolitan areas of the city. Seemingly they are the "most forgotten." Ms. Woumnm is currently working on her Master's degree in Public Health.
We aspire to be a distribution hub for Wilahmena's Place Corp. i.e. food, clothing etc. In addition to a state of the art drop-in and resource facility where we would offer a safe space for inner city youth.
