Dr. Moss received several community service awards, and was interviewed on various television and radio programs regarding her work. Dr. Moss designed, implemented and piloted curricula to teach school children between the ages of ten to eighteen about at-risk behaviors. Various school districts, community service organizations and houses of worship seek out her programs. Dr. Moss also developed several other youth-oriented programs, including Project Safe Haven. Project Safe Haven was designed to provide inner-city youth safe places to play and learn. She also implemented a ‘beeper service’, so that children could call in and ask questions or get support and encouragement. Dr. Moss has also worked as a hospital chaplain specializing in decedent care. In this capacity, she worked with the families and loved ones of the dead or dying. Her work as a grief counselor earned her many awards and scholarships. In May 2001, she completed a Doctor of Ministry degree from Columbia Theological Seminary. After the completion of her doctorate degree, Dr. Moss returned to Texas and now resides in Missouri City, Texas.
