Since giving back to the community is very important to Dr. Shields, she founded The Shields of Faith Foundation, Inc., a non-profit 501(c)(3) status, mentoring organization, upon retirement. The organization was established to "Educate, Encourage, Enhance and Empower Today's Youth and Young Adults and Tomorrow's Leaders." In an effort to honor the mentors who poured into her life as a child, Shirley introduced her foundation to her hometown, Fayetteville, by hosting an all day Empowerment Expo and Awards Ceremony in June of 2013. She honored 14 individuals from Fayetteville and Atlanta.


The Shields of Faith Academy is one of the projects within the foundation, which involves Dr. Shields conducting leadership seminars in Fayetteville, N.C. She notes that she's passionate about the Academy because of her love for teaching. According to her, it gave the participants hope and it gave her purpose. She also believes that she's fulfilling God's purpose for her life through service.
