Bindi Tilbury has worked in childhood education for 20 years.  She has a Bachelor’s degree in ECE with a focus in social service and labor management.  Bindi excels at communicating in a relational way with victims of trauma, assessing needs, and ensuring the coordination of resources.  She loves encouraging advocates as well as equipping volunteers for their daily work.  Bindi oversees Jonah’s “intake and placement” process. She understands the struggles that many of Spokane’s children face on a daily basis, and works to ensure that Survivors of Trafficking or At-Risk Youth recieve both equal opportunity and compassionate access to resources.  She is married to Aaron Tilbury and mom to two amazing young men.  Please contact Bindi if you are a resource provider, agency, or educator interested in sharing resources or if you have someone who needs placement or relocation.
