Sixth Street Shelter

The Sixth Street Shelter is a program that was created by the Community Action Committee of the Lehigh Valley, a non-profit organization. The Shelter’s mission is to “provide the opportunity and direction for all people to become self-sufficient, productive members of the community.” Serving families since 1984, The Sixth Street Shelter provides temporary housing for homeless families with children in the Lehigh Valley. The Shelter also helps families to set and reach goals by means of case management, in-house programming, and access to appropriate services that fit the needs of individual families. They currently offer 25 individual family apartments that include all necessary utilities.

The Kindness Project

The Kindness Project is an all-volunteer, donation based, non-profit organization created to provide support to foster families in the Lehigh Valley and surrounding areas by supplying clothing, furniture and other essential items free of charge to children in foster care. Many children enter foster care with nothing but the clothing they are wearing. The Kindness Project works to defray any financial burden, especially in emergency placement situations, where buying items like cribs, strollers, car seats, and diapers can add up very quickly.

Rachelle Gershkovich

Rachelle Gershkovich

Rachelle was 17 when she realized she had a gift for nurturing and soothing infants while also getting them to sleep longer. She began working part-time as a night nanny through her sister’s nannying agency and continued this work through college. As a nanny, Rachelle realized that infants often can sense anxiety in their parents and caregivers. She learned how to reset her own internal nervous system to reach a real sense of calm, so she could help the infant do the same. Most nannies, doulas, and infant care specialists get their insights from having their own children. Rachelle, however, was able to develop a specialized approach that works for every baby through her infant care working with many diverse families and children.

Through nursing courses, Rachelle discovered the undeniable value of nutrition and switched her major to Human Nutrition and Dietetics at Metropolitan State University of Denver. Combining her experience with new parents, babies, nannying, and nutrition, she was able to bring a restful night’s sleep to every home. After graduation, she officially founded Maternal Instincts in 2010. Rachelle has served over 5,000 families through her sleep groups and as a night nanny, newborn care specialist, doula, and sleep specialist. She has worked with newborns, multiples, and high-risk infants. Rachelle has supported families who were dealing with heart surgery recovery, feeding tubes, oxygen, colic, allergies, reflux, and more! Today, with nearly a decade of service through Maternal Instincts, Rachelle’s goal is to end sleep deprivation for babies AND parents, and to make parenthood a more restful, harmonious, and loving experience.

Nora

Nora

Starting with experience in babysitting and watching my younger cousins and sisters, my passion for working with kids grew into a career goal. I went to DeSales University and graduated with a BS in Computer Science. Though I had a degree in the design field, I felt the pull to the caregiving field. I decided to get my clearances and try out working in the preschool system. After about two years of this, I sought a better ratio.I believe that children thrive when given more attention and the tools needed to turn struggles into stepping stones.

I have a big, cuddle monster dog who loves running around and playing outside more than any treat in the world. And to finish this off, here’s a new word of the day: eclectic, and it means to have views, ideas, tastes, and styles deriving from all over, and I think if you need a word to describe me, that’s the one!
