Bridget Leonard Named Regional Director at Kindred Family Focus – Fergus Falls


Bridget Leonard has been named the new Regional Director for

Kindred Family Focus’ (KFF) Fergus Falls office, serving Fergus Falls and

the surrounding 15-county area.

Leonard lives in Fergus Falls with her husband and two children, and

brings more than 10 years of experience as a clinical social worker to

her new position.

She said she looks forward to the challenges of her new position with

Kindred Family Focus. “The most difficult part of the job is hearing

about what these children have been through — the trauma, neglect,

and/or abuse,” she said.  “But the best part is watching them grow and

thrive in secure, loving homes, with foster or adoptive families who

have been trained in understanding their unique needs. For some kids

and teens, that can take a long time, but, eventually, most are able to

trust again and gain a sense of safety.”

Kindred Family Focus —formerly PATH of Minnesota, Inc. — merged

with Nexus Treatment in 2012, and is now the largest private foster

care provider in the state.

KFF licenses foster care and adoptive homes, and provides ongoing

support and supervision to the children and families in its placements.

or adoptive parent, please call 218-739-3074.
