Barb Tenney (On Leave)

Kinnections Program Delivery Supervisor

Barb was invited to Crossroads in 2013 from the ‘group care world,’ to work as a Foster Care Support Worker. In 2014, she transitioned to our Kinnections Respite program, and was soon promoted to a Team Lead. Barb combines an organized and efficient professional style with a deep passion for working with high-risk youth. Barb has an educational background in Child & Youth Care, and is currently working on a post-baccalaureate certificate in Applied Behavioural Analysis.


  • Barb is highly-skilled at managing the behaviour of adolescents, particularly high-risk youth.
  • Barb loves to play soccer and although she has limited free time, she is the executive director of her soccer club.
  • Barb’s heart is infamously enormous for kids first, but for others that she meets as well.
