Board Chair & Alyssa's Mommy

Lynn cherishes time with her surviving daughter, Alyssa’s sister, Lexie. Love for dance still fills much of their free time.
Jeff Divers, is a bilingual editor and translator. American born, but raised in Argentina, he is fluent in Spanish and intimately familiar with the cultures of Latin America. Additionally, he spent several years counseling children in both hospital and wilderness settings.

His family has also experienced the blessings of having housing prepared and provided for them with minimal effort and cost.
