Reginald Williams, a Family Advocate, Speaker, Professional Development Trainer, Author and Behavioral ENTERventionist concentrating in family and community restoration. Credited with being a dynamic speaker, my presence as a presenter and workshop facilitator isn’t about my ability to give a stirring speech, but instead to solidify my mission which is to stimulate provoking thought that will lead to authentic wellness. I am also the founder and Executive Director of Family Is, a social service agency dedicated to family.
"If there were a naturally God gifted men's and family empowerment specialist it is Reggie," proclaims Dr. Leonard N. Smith.
Certified as a behavioral health specialist, I have dedicated my life to serving families and communities. It isn't my certification that makes me a specialist, but my ability to connect to and with my clients in special ways. Adam Alston, a junior at the University of Maryland, explains the connection. "Reggie has been a positive influence in my life since our first encounter, either through direct enlightenment or connection through his network of peers. I have gained an invaluable pool of knowledge that has allowed me to awaken the greatness instilled in me."
My devotion to the community was acknowledged by Rep. Donna F. Edwards, who honored me with a "Congressional Recognition Award" for my "Outstanding and invaluable service to the 4th Congressional District and for improving the quality of life for men, women and families." I was also recognized by the Prince George's County Police Department and Chief of Police Mark Magaw for my work with "violent offenders" in the community. From pulpits to prisons I share the messages of "I'm Possible," "Boxed In: Examine Your Why" and "Healing the Hurt."
"Mr. Williams' facilitating skills are inspiring because he presents topics and facilitates discussions in a way that draws people in. As a social work student, I have learned so much about the importance of, and the how to of developing a connection with your client," says Kendra Phillips a 4th year Social Work student.
With each and every one-to-one session, keynote address or workshop facilitation I simply hope to leave each person with a nugget of information that will cause them to explore a more insightful view of their situation.
Standing on the landscape of the legacy seeded by my ancestors - I believe that family, the cornerstone of a great nation, serves as the seed for success for a vibrant and healthy community.
