Our Community Coordinators

Rosalinda Moeckelmann

Community Coordinator

Linda Palmer

Community Coordinator

Linda worked 31 years in Telecommunications “helping businesses communicate with each other and with their customers using technology” until the 2008 downturn in the economy.  Because of her years of volunteering at Redwood Chapel with the Seniors and their events, she was hired at a senior living community in Fremont to help families determine if that community was a good fit for their loved one.  Supporting people who help those in need feels really great.  Innocent Voices assists ministries who help children.  These children, with our help, can know safety and joy, perhaps for the first time.
