The Project

Sheba assisted low-income elders in the Greater Boston area to ensure that they live free from abuse, neglect, and exploitation. This project encompasses a variety of issues including public housing evictions or appealing a termination of federal and state benefits.

Sheba was the right person for the project because of her undeniable passion to prevent vulnerable communities from all forms of abuse, abandonment, and/ or neglect.
