Hi! My name is Yalonda Slaughter. I am a Parent Aide Specialist for Clark County. I hold an Associate’s Degree in Criminal Justice and a Bachelors in Human Services: Child and Family Welfare. I am in the process of finishing my last couple of classes at Clark State Community College for my Chemical Dependency Certification.
Before CHOICES, I worked specifically with at-risk troubled adolescents in Juvenile Detention Centers. I have worked for Montgomery County Juvenile Probation as a Treatment Court Specialist, specializing with youth who are struggling with substance abuse disorders and mental health issues. My desire has always been to work with youth and families and to eventually own my own Group Home that places a lot of emphasis on Adolescents and Drug Recovery.
When I am not at work you can always find me spending time with my family, especially my younger nieces and nephews, reading and writing for my blog website. I love to bake and workout.
