Shakee Bellamy is originally from Newark, New Jersey, but moved to Cincinnati prior to his senior year of high school. He graduated from The University of Toledo with a Bachelor’s in Social Work and is currently attending the University of Akron pursuing his masters in social work.

“My passion for assisting people and enhancing their ability to see potential and growth in themselves is what led me to BWS. I develop professional relationships with people to allow them to remember me when going through life’s obstacles. I believe our children need guidance because of the traumatic barriers they face daily. My vision is to assist the population of people I serve by creating positive behavioral habits that will promote growth and motivation to improve themselves. I believe the Battered Women’s Shelter will give me the opportunity to be a part of something special by working with children to enhance a better future.

In my personal time, I enjoy working out, hanging out with friends, making people laugh, watching movies (sometimes), playing video games and board games and assisting people. I have never been camping, but would love to try it!”
