Dr. Delores V. Mullings’ community based experience is located in hostels, shelters and sexual assault centres working primarily with and for women who are survivors of partner assault, street involvement and/or homeless. She was instrumental in providing leadership to implement healing programs for women who experienced trauma in their lives. Her frontline experience included advocacy, court accompaniment as well as group and individual peer counseling. Her journey of working with and supporting women and girls continued in child welfare agencies where she supported women and their children whose homes child welfare agencies disrupted. She was a Board member of a regional child welfare agency as well as the President and Vice President of the Foster Parent Association in the same region. In those capacities, she contributed to the agency’s knowledge, understanding and practice modalities of critical race social work practice specifically towards mothers and children of African descent inclusive of their lived experiences and complexities.
