Social Entrepreneur & Change Maker
When Lynn Price was age eight, she found out that she was a foster child and had a sister in foster care with another family on the other side of town. The impact of that startling news and the trauma of a disconnected sibling relationship continues to motivate Lynn in her life’s work as a social entrepreneur, coach and speaker featured on the front page of Denver Woman magazine and the National Speakers Association magazine. As a former youth in foster care, she set her sights on learning the system from which she came serving along the way as a CASA, shelter volunteer, foster parent, adoptive parent and founder of Camp To Belong. Celebrating over 20 years, CTB has reunited over 10,000 brothers and sisters who live in separate foster, adoptive or relative homes. Her accolades speak for themselves including The Presidents Service Award from President Clinton, Oprah’s Angel Network Use Your Life Award from Oprah Winfrey, University of Illinois Alumni Humanitarian Award and Redbook Magazine Mothers and Shakers Award.
