Twenty years ago, I bought a home here in NHW. I raised my children here and enjoy an extended family of friends and neighbors. I love this area and care about the future as much as I cherish the past.

I am a Real Estate Agent and a resident of North Hills West. I have lived in SFV practically all my life. I joined the NHWNC to share my knowledge, experience and to give back to my community by volunteering. I would like to see for our City to become one of the “Top 10 Great Neighborhoods in Los Angeles”. I believe for that to happen, we need to band together and give back by volunteering our time and doing things for one another. My fellow board members and I are passionate about the work we are doing. We believe each Stakeholder we represent is a friend! Join us, together we are stronger!!!

Shirley Dabit – General Stakeholder

My name is Shirley Dabit. I have a bachelors degree in Political Science with a minor in Family Studies. I also graduated with an English Teaching Credential. As a mother of two children and an educator, I am committed to building a safe and healthy community for families to thrive in. I believe in connecting with the schools in order to make a positive impact in the area and better serve the students and their families as they are the future of North Hills. I also believe in working together with faith-based organizations, neighborhood councils, and community activists. It is important to focus on safety, reducing homelessness, creating jobs and enrichment programs, and to strive to make North Hills the community that it deserves to be.
