Kindra French, Women’s Program Case Manager

Kindra’s interest in working with women who are reentering their communities came to her through Women and Genders Studies classes when she learned of the epidemic proportions that women were being incarcerated and the impact on their communities, themselves and their children and families. She says “In August of 2012 I started an internship with Sponsors’ Women’s Program, which has now turned into the start of my career. My goal is to have a positive impact on the women I work with that will allow them to make positive choices for themselves and benefiting their families and community.” “My husband and I have been married for ten years, we have a son and I have two bonus daughters that I am extremely honored to have in my life and be apart of theirs. Our leisure time usually consists of outdoor camping, fishing and gardening with the family and an occasional football game and roller derby bout. One of my hobbies is outdoor photography, I love taking pictures of nature and enjoying the beauty of it all.”
