A star on both the silver and small screens, including the Academy Award-winning film, The Artist, NBC’s iconic daytime series “Days of Our Lives,” ABC’s “General Hospital,” and a regular leading lady on Hallmark Channel, actress/singer/philanthropist Jen Lilley has tackled countless roles throughout her illustrious career.
Lilley’s creative prowess does not end when the director yells cut as she is also a singer and songwriter. When not busy in front of the camera, or perfecting her vocals in studio, she can be found hosting her podcast, “Fostering Hope with Jen Lilley,” to demystify the foster care system and encourage loving people to get involved in the cause.
She is a true champion for charities. In addition to donating 100% of her music profits to create a neighborhood model of safe loving foster homes, she co-founded Christmas is Not Cancelled, Inc., a marketing company that raises awareness and funds for amazing causes and nonprofits while giving participants the chance to win huge prizes.
As a teenager, Lilley garnered the National Educators Award for her work in Guatemala. She is known for advocating children’s rights and supports charities that focus on protecting children against physical and sexual abuse, human trafficking, and the world water crisis. Truly selfless, she is a foster and adoptive parent herself and is a celebrity ambassador for the child abuse and treatment organization Childhelp, Project Orphans, ECPAT, Olive Crest, The Dave Thomas Foundation, The Thirst Project, The Los Angeles Mission, Oneless, A21, Children of the Night and the Innocent Justice Foundation.
