Robert K. Brown, JR.
Founder and Executive Director
Robert has worked with at risk youth for over 30 years. He started Young Lives Redeemed in 2014 to serve the unmet needs of former foster youth transitioning out of the foster care system, specifically addressing their debilitating unresolved childhood trauma and related addiction.
Robert has been a member of the California Bar since 1986, working with international law firms, and practicing in the area of commercial and financial transactions. He formed Kendall Development in 2001, and developed over $30 million of residential real estate in Southern California.
Shawn is the President of Baldwin & Sons, LLC. He has an extensive background in residential real estate development. He has served in various capacities for the Baldwin Companies, the Pacific Division of Sunrise Companies, and Pacific Coast Communities, specializing in single-family and master-plan development.

Rebecca Callahan (“Beki”) is an attorney who spent the first part of her career handling complex business litigation matters in state and federal court, and the second part as a full-time mediator, arbitrator and court referee. Beki has been drawn to community service since she came to Orange County. In her professional career, she has contributed by serving in leadership positions with several organizations, creating and producing legal education programs, and acting as a volunteer mediator to the state and federal courts for over 20 years. In her local community, she has served in leadership positions with not-for-profit organizations associated with education and youth athletic programs.
Beki joined the YLR board because it is dedicated to a local cause that does not get much attention: emancipated foster youth, who have been provided with food and shelter during their minor years, but who leave that system without the tools, education, support or resources to enter or engage with the outside world.
Lisa Maguire is a long-time Orange County resident. She raised her two now adult children with her husband, Kevin, who works in real estate development.
Lisa has always had a heart for abused and neglected children, and has served in different capacities with various nonprofit entities, including for several years as a court appointed special advocate with CASA Orange County. She is pleased to be in a position to bring attention to the under-served needs of homeless former foster youth, a situation with which she has first-hand knowledge through her past volunteer activities.
