Guest Biography: 

Shirley Tabb LICSW LCSW-C is a preeminent Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) Washington, DC and Licensed Clinical Social Worker –
Clinical tract (Maryland) advocate who has assessed and helped over 1000 people in the District of Columbia access community resources and home health services under the Home and Community Based Medicaid Waiver for the Elderly and Disabled.

Shirley has history of hosting her own talk show on DC Cable Television where she discussed pertinent issues facing poor, elderly, and disabled people receiving or
in need of Medicaid or private-pay home health care. These shows are available for viewing on YouTube and Vimeo.com.

Social marketing and community liaisons are strengths that enabled her to raise over $2 million dollars (media and in-kind services) while working in Adoptions and Foster Parent Recruitment fundraising in the community and during her annual Celebrity Golf Tournaments with big named sponsors including Phi Beta Sigma, Les Brown, Radio One, Price Waterhouse Coopers, ESPN, and major foundations including the Fannie Mae Foundation and Microsoft who donated a quarter of a million dollars to DC CFSA, during one of her annual fundraisers.

The Microsoft donation of $250,000 in computer software and games for foster and adoptive parents/children was the largest donation in the foundation’s history of giving to any non-profit organization.

A staunch advocate for children and the elderly, Shirley was also selected from among over 1000 nominees to be honored at the annual Working Woman’s Award Luncheon sponsored by WJLA – TV Channel 7 (Washington, DC) and Metro area Toyota dealers in 2006.

Another strong passion is end of life care issues and opportunities and Shirley enjoys speaking with community groups and working with families with loved ones with life threatening illnesses when in hospice.
