D'Mychal Norwood

Sr. Host Homes Coordinator

An Oklahoma Native, born and raised in Tulsa. Since the age of 15, my desire has always been to help others. After graduating high school in 2006 I started my college career at the local community college, not truly knowing what field to study, I just knew I wanted to complete a degree. After a year, I decided to study psychology. I later moved to Lawton, Oklahoma where I continued my undergrad studies at Cameron University and began working at the Child Development Center with the Department of Defense. Once I graduated in 2013, I had a strong desire to branch out and learn a new territory. The opportunity came to transfer to Miami, Florida and continue my work with the Department of Defense. After a year of working with the Army Garrison in Doral, I decided to branch out and gain more experience in working with youth and their families. I gained an opportunity to work for Miami Dade Parks and Recreations Disability Services as a Program Specialist. During this time I was enrolled full time with Florida International University School of Social Work Graduate Program. My area of focus was Child Welfare. I completed two internships one with Department of Children and Families and the other with Baptist South Miami Hospital. Upon completion of my studies in 2017 I had begun working with Miami Bridge Youth and Family Services. Miami Bridge has since been a part of my heart in connecting with youth and families, and promoting positive change within the community. With the pleasure of previously holding multiple other roles within the agency, I am currently working with young people transitioning into early adulthood who are experiencing housing instabilities. This work has been rewarding to say the least.
