Linda Hanke

Case Manager -Birth Parent Advocate, Spokane Office


Linda's passion for helping children in foster care was birthed out of her own experiences as a foster child between the ages of five and twelve.  Her experience as a foster child did not prove to be positive, which has led to her strong desire to contribute to the process of placing children in loving, stable, forever families.

As an adult, Linda completed her Master’s Degree in Social Work, received healing and restoration through her Christian faith and support services, and has spent many years working in the field of foster care and adoption. She has also worked extensively with young women from unstable and broken homes.

Linda is the mother of two grown children and the grandmother of four grandsons, who are the delight of her life. She has authored a devotional book and loves to write articles for publications about what God is up to in her world.
