BOARD OF DIRECTORS
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.

Tina discovered her passion for art as therapy when navigating through her own healing journey. She founded Silver Lining Paintistry, a ministry that tells her story through artistic expression, and gives a percentage of all sales directly to Beloved: Not Forgotten. She hopes this art ministry will be a venue in which to showcase the artworks of Beloved: Not Forgotten participants and other survivors. Future plans include going back to school with focus in Art as Therapy.
