Your Next Public Speaker

Since her own homeless experience, Versandra Kennebrew has spent more than a decade dedicating her life and lending her voice to ending poverty and homelessness. A holistic health professional, speaker, author, and soon-to-be yoga instructor, she has a passion for inspiring people who are experiencing major life transitions to never give up on themselves or their dreams.

She supports other formerly homeless speakers to strengthen their skills in the art of storytelling through the Gateway Center’s Faces of Homelessness Speakers Bureau. She also uses her voice to propel emerging leaders as a Distinguished Toastmaster and coaches entrepreneurs to seek balance in their lives while building their empires.

Kennebrew recently completed a year of National Service as an Americorps VISTA where she worked on building capacity to alleviate poverty. She also served on the board of directors for Detroit’s Coalition on Temporary Shelter and was elected as a Community Services Commissioner for the Detroit Department of Human Services.

Author of the memoir on overcoming homelessness, “Thank God for the Shelter,” Kennebrew has shared her story across the nation, including for the Institute for Children In Poverty, the National Conference on Ending Homelessness, the Black Women’s Expo, and many colleges and universities. “Ignite Your Imagination: Discover The Art of Reinventing You” is her most requested speaking topic.

  1. Wow Dominique! I know you were apprehensive at first, being asked to lie down on the floor in the office and all:-) But the guys needed you at peak performance and sharing my healing gift with you was the least I could do to support the “In the Black Suites” mission of the day. When you came back and gave me a hug, I knew that what was causing your pain had been released, and that with regular stretching and hydration, your pain would not return. You are strong and powerful my brother.
