Shamekka Williams, MS

Care Coordinator

Shamekka joined NEDFYS as a counselor and our very first care coordinator.  Working at our Addison office, Shamekka primarily works with individuals and families who reside within the boundaries of Bloomingdale Township.  In this new position, she conducts assessments with clients to determine the level of need.  In addition, she provides counseling, employment, educational, and life skill training all while advocating for her clients.

Prior to joining NEDFYS, Shamekka worked as a juvenile justice specialist for the Illinois Department of Juvenile Justice (IDJJ) as well as working with the Director of Women and Family Center at the Morning Star Mission (Joliet, IL).

Fun fact: When not advocating for clients or spending time with her family, Shamekka enjoys singing background vocals professionally for artists such as Zeke Locke and the NuExperience, Tye Tribbett, and more.
