Bebashi Leadership

Sebrina Tate
President/Chief Executive Officer

Sebrina began her professional career as a social work supervisor in a small organization committed to ensuring child welfare and safety. Today, she has over 30 years of experience in the field, working in diverse roles and across multiple domains. She has worked as an administrator in various aspects of the social work field including Mental and Behavioral Health, Housing, Education, Social Services, and Community Relations.

Her experience includes oversite of the Strength Alliance; a program that promotes and encourages the resilience, health, and well-being of individuals who engage in organized commercial or underground sex work. The Strength Alliance’s target population consists of individuals who self-identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, and/ or intersex (LGBTQI).

Born, raised, and educated in the Philadelphia area, Sebrina earned her Bachelor of Social Work degree from Temple University. She continued her education in Washington DC where she attended Howard University and obtained her Masters of Social Work (MSW).

While working with a team of professionals to construct an Autism School in the greater NE, she decided to obtain a second Master’s Degree from Saint Joseph’s University in Criminal Justice with a concentration on Applied Behavior Analysis. More recently, Sebrina completed a post-graduate certificate in LGBT Health Policy and Practice at George Washington University.

Sebrina was also the primary evaluator for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention grant awarded to the School district of Philadelphia for several years. “I am passionate about carrying the mission forward and fighting for their rights and liberation because we are all one in the same fight” 11 This grant supported school-based HIV prevention and surveillance including the Youth Risk Behavioral Survey (YRBS) and School Health Profiles.

Sebrina joined Bebashi after leaving her role as Director of Student Services at a small for-profit company that provides behavioral support to primarily autistic students throughout the state of Pennsylvania. She was instantly drawn to Bebashi’s mission to empower the Black, Brown and the LGBTQ community.

As a mother of two, she understands the need for culturally competent healthcare. Her oldest son Trae was born at 28 weeks gestation and diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy, after less than attentive healthcare providers failed to follow up on her numerous requests for a more thorough exam to ensure the health and wellness of her unborn child. Her experience fueled her determination to address the social determinants of health affecting Black and Brown people in the city.

In her current role as President and CEO, Sebrina focuses on ensuring that uninsured and underinsured residents of the city of Philadelphia receive the services they need. Primarily, to close the health disparity gaps that exist in Black, Brown, LGBT, and other underrepresented groups in the city through education, nutrition, and preventive healthcare services.
