"I'm excited for the opportunity to expand the work I've done in Maryland with integrating behavioral health throughout all of our programs. Working to increase the clinical impact in District of Columbia....... will continue to improve access to care for our underserved populations." -Dr. Sheryl Neverson
Under her leadership, Maryland added outpatient mental health services which led to several additional substance use disorder and behavioral health services launching as well as primary care. Maryland expanded the number of clinical staff for the organization, raised the bar for Evidenced Based Practices and expanded community-based services. The programs earned additional CARF accreditations and the Residential Reentry Center recently earned their ACA renewal accreditation. Sheryl has a strength for grant writing and program design. Maryland has successfully been awarded several difficult to earn awards such as the DOL VOA Works program, SAMHSA CCBHC, and SAMHSA CMHC.
Sheryl is an outstanding leader and is always willing to help where she is needed. She consistently demonstrates a commitment to those we serve and model our affiliate’s core values (Visionary, One Body, Integrity, Compassion, Excellence, Faith).
