Through four decades of mission-driven work, Shore has developed a deep understanding of the needs of troubled youth and families and unsurpassed expertise to meet these needs. Her vision for empowering at-risk and homeless youth through a competency-based approach to counseling and supportive services has been enhanced through the recruitment and training of an exceptional staff and the development of strong management systems to ensure that the agency’s work meets the highest standards of quality and cost-effectiveness. Shore played a key role in the legislation creating the federal Runaway and Homeless Youth Act.  She received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Network for Youth in 2007.  She is currently the Chair of its governing board of directors.  In 2012, she was given the prestigious Champions of Change Award from the White House for her ongoing work in preventing youth homelessness.  In 2014, Shore was inducted into the Washington DC Hall of Fame in recognition of her historic contributions to civic and community development in the nation’s capital.

Washingtonian Magazine recently cited Shore’s leadership by designating her as a 2016 Washingtonian of the Year.  Read the Washingtonian piece here.
