Full-time photographer and business owner, mother of two, and now in school for nursing, Charlotte is a magical creature whose days seem to be composed of more than 24 hours based on the sheer amount of work she gets done in a day. She is deeply passionate about injustice and people in need. She founded Blackbird Outreach with her husband, Trig, and friend Andi Van Gogh.
Activist, community organizer, and business owner, Trig is the Co-Founder and Co-Executive Director of The Coalition for Compassion and Action (CCA), Blackbird Outreach's parent organization. The CCA was founded as a voice for the voiceless surviving outside in Colorado Springs, and Blackbird Outreach is a natural extension of that mission as we turn action into service.
