Family Advocate

Jacquelyn Shinners joined the Mission Kids team as a Family Advocate in November 2018. Prior to joining our Child Advocacy Center, Jacquelyn was a Legal Advocate at A Woman’s Place, a domestic violence agency in Bucks County. Jacquelyn gained experience in the human services field as an intern at Laurel House and Eagleville Hospital before graduating from Gwynedd Mercy University with a BA in Human Services. Jacquelyn chose this field because she has always been interested in where social work meets the legal system. Being able to connect people with the services they need, but don’t necessarily know about, is rewarding to her and she finds satisfaction in helping people help themselves. Based on her experience in this field and commitment to helping children and their families, Jacquelyn is a huge asset to Mission Kids’ Family Advocacy Program!
