Founder and Chief Executive Officer
Judy Boen is an ordained chaplain and a former chaplain for Mabel Bassett Correctional Center, the state prison for women located in Oklahoma in both general population and on death row. She served as a chaplain at the Bakersfield Rehabilitation Hospital and was Director of Counseling and Client Services for the Bakersfield Crisis Pregnancy Center, counseling both clients and families. She completed a two-year in-depth training course for inner healing through Church On The Way in Van Nuys, California. She is also certified to teach Domestic Violence classes as of 2012.

Judy has served as chaplain for the San Luis Obispo County Women’s Jail and Sheriff’s Department in Central California since 2000. She was awarded a Citizen Academy Certificate of Completion through that department. She was recognized as ``Volunteer of the Year`` from the Sheriff's Department in 2018.

In 2006, the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors recognized Judy for receiving the Commission on the Status of Women, “Service to Women” Award, a prestigious award presented annually to a woman who shows outstanding service to the community. In 2010, she was awarded the “Soroptimist Ruby Award: For Women Helping Women” by the local and regional Soroptimist Clubs as an outstanding community leader, an honor given to women who are making extraordinary differences in the lives of other women. In 2012, Judy received the Citizen of the Year award for the City of Grover Beach from the Chamber of Commerce. She is often a guest speaker at community club gatherings, women’s meetings, retreats and co-teaches “Unmasked–a Face of Grace,” a course she co-authored.


Board Member
Sherri Masters has lived and worked on the Central Coast as a Real Estate Agent since 1989. She and her husband Paul own and operate Home Masters Realty. They have five children, three sons with families of their own, one son who will be attending Cal Poly, and a daughter at Arroyo Grande High School.

Sherri was introduced to Captive Hearts through a client in 2012. She began mentoring and serving the women in the program and has been blessed by each and every woman’s story, perseverance and successes. She has a passion for experiencing the power of the Cross and the love of Jesus as He touches and changes lives. Having experienced the healing power of Jesus in her own life since accepting Christ as her Lord in 2004, she continues to trust and be amazed that God works all things for good to those who love Him and have been called according to His purpose, Romans 8:28. She is excited to be on the Board with Captive Hearts.

Since working with Captive Hearts, she has witnessed them relocate several times. (Editor’s note: due to the owners selling the homes.) God has placed it on her heart to help raise the funds necessary to purchase a permanent home, which Judy lovingly refers to as “Turn Around Ranch”. This is God’s vision, and Sherri is honored and excited to be a part of it. Now is the Time!
