March 3, 2022 Speaker – Richmond Assoc for Community Living- Shannon Crofton/ Melissa Irving
For many who receive support from RSCL, Shannon has been there every step of the way. Shannon started with the organization in 1991 working at Pendleton House which provided respite for children at that time. Since then Shannon has worked in programs supporting individuals from childhood through every stage of adulthood, and has been instrumental in the growth of programs and supports offered by RSCL.
Shannon believes that the lifelong supports offered by RSCL is what makes the organization unique, but also ensures that individuals and families are encouraged to plan, learn, dream and grow. From supporting a child to learn new skills, to empowering people through Community Inclusion programs, Shannon is committed to ensuring that RSCL is there; providing diverse programs with the same goal – to encourage the people we support to live rich, fulfilled lives.
From January-October, 2020 Shannon served as Acting Executive Director during which time she demonstrated unwavering leadership. She has not only led the organization through an unprecedented health crisis, she has continued to focus on delivering services that make RSCL a leader in the community living sector.
