BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Founder and Executive Director
From May 2014 - August 2015 I worked with girls who had been sexually exploited in Thailand. Before this experience, I was aware of the presence of sex trafficking in other countries; however, I did not grasp the magnitude of the issue in the United States.
Through further research, I learned that there were only two homes that worked specifically with this population of hurting youth in the state of Indiana. I knew that I could no longer sit back and do nothing. Beloved: Not Forgotten began with a small group of people coming together to pray each week over how we could serve this population of youth.
My desire is to provide home-like residential care for these youth who are so brutally abused. To see them in safety, to tell them that they have a good purpose for being on this earth, and to help them begin their healing process has become the passion of my heart.
