Amanda De Herrera, Program Manager
Amanda started as Program Director at Focus Reentry in June 2015. Prior to that, she volunteered at Focus as a Mentor for three years and completed her Associates Degree in Criminal Justice at Front Range Community College. Amanda really enjoys working at Focus with clients and mentors. She says that her most rewarding experiences involve successfully helping mentors to connect clients to mental health and substance abuse support services here in Boulder County. “I believe that it is critical to provide clients with the basic front end support and encouragement necessary to stay healthy mentally and to maintain sobriety. We make sure that clients can connect to these essential services upon release so that they do not fall through the cracks.” In her free time, Amanda likes to spend time with her family, doing things like family gatherings and outings. She also heads her daughter’s Girl Scout Troop and volunteers at her school.
