Bio: Ms. Erika C. Stallworth is currently the executive director of the LaPorte County Juvenile Services Center (JSC), a 36 bed shelter care and detention facility for at-risk and children in need of services. Prior to this, Ms. Stallworth served as assistant director, counseling supervisor, caseworker, and youth specialist worker; all within the JSC. Ms. Stallworth holds a Bachelors degree in Psychology from Spelman College, a Masters degree in Social Work from the University of Michigan, and a Juris Doctorate degree from Loyola University Chicago School of Law. She has a certificate in child and family law and is licensed to practice law in the state of Indiana. Ms. Stallworth serves on several community boards, including Family Advocates, Inc. (formerly LaPorte County Harmony House/Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA)), and the LaPorte County Juvenile Detention Alternatives Initiative (JDAI) Steering Committee. She is an alumni Fellow of the National Juvenile Justice Network's Youth Leadership Institute and serves on NJJN's advisory committee. She is a founding board member of the Children's Policy and Law Initiative of Indiana (see above), a non-profit dedicated to protecting the rights of children. In 2008, Ms. Stallworth was appointed by the Indiana Speaker of the House of Representatives to serve on the Governor's Commission on Disproportionality in Youth Services. In addition to her role at the JSC and practicing law, Ms. Stallworth is also a part-time photographer, something that brings her great joy.
