It was a defining moment for Lynn. Volunteering at Child Haven (a children’s shelter in Las Vegas, NV), and serving as a Court Appointed Special Advocate, she recognized two concerning factors in the child welfare system. First, siblings were being separated when placed in foster care. Second, too many youth who had been foster care were incarcerated, homeless, or uneducated later in life.
Separated from her older sister while in the foster care system, Lynn was 8 years old when she learned that she had a biological sister living on the other side of town. Subsequently, they had limited, supervised visits throughout their childhood. Lynn and her older sister, Andi, did not develop a sisterly bond and friendship until they were young adults. Lynn did not want brothers and sisters to miss out on everyday childhood memories together that she and Andi didn’t have.
Lynn founded Camp To Belong with the passion to make a difference for their success and sibling relationships. She spent the first thirteen years working for the organization full time to create the model that is now replicated widely. Now she serves as Founder and Senior Advisor, visiting the Camps and working on various CTB projects year-round.
Recognized as an Ashoka Fellow (global social entrepreneur), Lynn is honored as a “changemaker” working tirelessly on behalf of siblings separated in foster care. She gives keynotes and conducts workshops for the child welfare sector to inspire the community with gratitude as well as to social entrepreneurs to encourage them to bring their visions to fruition. She is the author of Vision For A Change, A Social Entrepreneur’s Insights From the Heart and Real Belonging, Give Siblings Their Right to Reunite®. Visit www.lynnprice.com.
