  • Candace Rashada-Mujahid brings over twenty years experience coordinating and assisting in the development of successful grant proposals, as well as training and development for young adult and adult populations in transition from foster care, homelessness and incarceration. Her experience with City University of New York, City of New York Administration for Children’s Services and New York State Office of Youth Services led to the creation and continued funding of programs that served transitioning public assistance recipients, youth leaving foster care as well as children in protective custody.

She has also served as a grant proposal reviewer at both the New York state and federal levels. Since relocating to North Carolina, she has successfully written proposals for Community Success Initiative, a reentry community-based organization, as well as collaborated with other non-profits in the area that serve youth and adults. She presented “Organizational Capacity Building & Network Development” at the North Carolina Department of Correction Office of Transition Services 2007 Statewide Conference on Offender Reentry. In March 2015, she presented “Fostering Successful Reentry through Employment” at the annual North Carolina State University School of Social Work Spring Symposium.
