Development Director

Linda Safford

I returned “home” to Spokane in 2015 after six years in Memphis Tennessee. I’m originally from Southern California, where I spent many years with the San Diego Zoo in operations and fund development. I’ve had the privilege to be the “first” Development Director for several social service agencies, and I’m excited to contribute to the mission and nonprofit work of A Refuge, providing much needed trauma informed care in Spokane. I love to spend my free time with my high school sweetheart Bobby and our four rescue dogs, doing home renovation and writing my first book, a childhood memoir.
