Family Profile: The Shaw-Borishes

Who are you?

We are the Shaw-Borish family and we live in Fitler Square. We have three children: Elijah (13), Sonia (11), and Noa (5).

Tell us what makes you extra awesome!

I run a small private practice that specializes in Maternal Mental Health and the cool new thing we’re doing is in-home postpartum visits all over the City, surrounding suburbs and South Jersey.

What are your kids doing that is super cool?

My 13-year-old son designed a T-shirt to raise money for Black Lives Matter as a result of becoming very upset about police brutality and racism in general in our country. He is selling the t-shirts for $25 and all proceeds go towards Black Lives Matter. People are just sending checks made out to Black Lives Matter to our home or they are Venmo-ing me money. We’ve made $2000 already! Several people wanted their shirts donated so along with sandwiches my kids made we gave out some of the t-shirts to homeless in Kensington.

Why do you call the Philadelphia area home and what makes it a special place to raise tweens?

I was raised in Rittenhouse Square and always knew I would move back to raise my own kids.

How can we learn more about your project?

My business Web site is For inquiries about the shirts, people can email me.
