Women’s Ministry/Organization Highlight Lynn Springer Innocent Spouse & Children Project Lynn Springer is the Founding Advocate of the Innocent Spouse & Children Project. As the innocent partner of a white-collar criminal, and a mother, Lynn is called to this ministry with a heart of compassion and understanding. She assists women and families in finding ethical ways through faith and practical solutions to a new, sturdy, healthy way of life.

She is a long-time supporter of criminal justice/prison initiatives: Re-Entry Ministry, a faith-based halfway house for women in E. Bridgeport, CT, Family ReEntry in Bridgeport & New Haven, CT, a nonprofit serving formerly incarcerated people and their families, and Pivot Ministries, Bridgeport, CT, a faith-based halfway house for addiction recovery. As a woman of faith, Lynn was pleased to serve terms as Deacon and Senior Deacon at the Second Congregational Church of Greenwich, CT. WOMEN WALKING BY FAITH MAGAZINE | 24
