KBFLC is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization in good standing with the IRS and the State of Colorado. Mission Statement KBFLC is committed to changing the narrative of underserved individuals, families and youth who have been impacted by various forms of Trauma. We do this by: Advocacy, Education, Case Management and Mentorship Vision Our Vision is to empower and motivate participants to make the necessary and positive changes in their lives to be the persons they were created to be. Ms. Jenkins, now Executive Director of KBFLC, founded the organization in response to her own abusive marriage and the challenges she faced as a single mother and domestic violence survivor once she left her first marriage. Through first-hand experience, she recognized gaps in services and the difficulty of navigating the system without an experienced advocate. Professionally, Ms. Jenkins has 25 years of experience working with high-risk youth, domestic violence survivors, and their families. Most recently, she worked as a Victim Advocate at Ft. Carson Army Base for the past five years, until she retired in August 2018 to work full-time at KBFLC. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Social Work, a master’s degree in Education, and has numerous certifications and trainings in violence prevention, victims’ advocacy, and trauma-informed care.
