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. A certified yoga instructor, she assists women and families in finding ethical ways through faith and practical solutions to a new sturdy, healthy, spiritual way of life.
Lynn’s concern for children and social justice for all people led her to several nonprofit Board and volunteer situations, including: as curriculum consultant and essay reader at Friends of Nick, a NYC faith-based foundation created to build character and integrity in underprivileged inner city youth; as a member of the Board of Directors of Pathways, Greenwich, CT, at which she advocated for the needs and care of the mentally ill; and on the Board of the International Aids Charitable Foundation, NYC. 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. Together with her husband Rev. Jeff Grant, Lynn co-founded the Fresh Start Garden of Hope – a Family Reentry project where ex-offenders helped to convert a blighted block in inner city Bridgeport into the largest privately owned public use park and garden in the State of Connecticut. Lynn and Jeff speak together about their ministry on a regular basis on local radio shows and in houses of worship.
