Shington's skills and experience earned him the position of Director of the Office of Human Services and Community Partnerships (HSCP), a role he held the past seven years. His leadership at HSCP was particularly crucial during the global COVID-19 pandemic, during which he managed an intricate system of state and federal programs to secure funding for vulnerable populations.

His strategies led to the investment of over $182 million in funds addressing homelessness and affordable housing, providing tangible relief for thousands of households.

Beyond these efforts, Shington also oversees the County’s Veteran Services Division, ensuring local veterans receive the state and federal benefits they deserve. His collaborative efforts with Veteran Service Organizations have resulted in impactful events such as the Operation Thank You Breakfast and Honor Flight.
