Jennifer Rivera

Family Development Program Manager

Jennifer Rivera (known by Jenn) is our Family Development Program Manager, was born in Puerto Rico, and raised in Brooklyn, NY, and recently relocated to Denver to enjoy a change of pace and scenery. In NYC, she worked as a Career and Internship Coordinator at a non-profit school program for overage and undercredited high school students. She's incredibly passionate about the work that nonprofits accomplish, and the impact of trusted individuals in young people's lives. 


Jenn is a music and nature lover, has a serious sweet tooth, and is a big fan of a daytime nap. In her free time, she is spending time hiking or at silly events with her rescue dogs, Zoe and Ellie, who are loving Denver too! Jenn is active in volunteer and animal rescue work, serving as a core coordinator for a NYC based animal rescue for the past year. Jenn loves how entrenched her life is in service work, and wouldn't change it for the world. 

The Heart & Hand Center is a 501(c)(3) organization - By creating a nurturing community, Heart & Hand empowers all young people to realize their potential.
