In 2012, after the untimely death of Shantell's one year old daughter and in an effort to prevent parents and families from suffering this same heartbreak, she founded Touching Young Lives, Incorporated; a nonprofit that focuses on the health and well-being of infants and children by offering best practice infant care education and providing families with Portable Alternative Cribs as safe infant sleeping spaces. Portable Alternative Cribs are eco-friendly cardboard boxes, with padding at the bottom, that serves as a safe and alternative sleeping space for parents and caregivers. She has worked with thousands of children in Baltimore with one goal in mind-preventing another untimely infant death.
