Meet Christina Defenbaugh

My name is Christina Defenbaugh and I am the co-founder of 10-42 Project. Daniel is my husband and we have 5 children. I’ve always had a special interest in psychology and helping hurting people. I have my bachelor’s degree in psychology and strive to use my knowledge of mental health to help first responders and their family members. I love learning so I am always up for opportunities to deepen my knowledge and serve as a more equipped asset to the community of people I’m called to help. A specific aspect of our work at 10-42 Project that I’m especially passionate about is giving first responders a platform for their stories and experiences to be heard by other first responders, as well as the general public. There is so much power in empathy and connection and I believe that’s what it will take to break the stigma holding so many of our public servants back from reaching out and receiving the tools they need. Outside of this, I can be found enjoying time and activities with my family and friends, catching a live music performance, or retreating to a painting class.


Please feel free to reach out to me for any reason.

We truly appreciate each and every person, business, & sponsor that support our efforts to help as many First Responders as possible find the support they need.
