  • Brooke Pollard, Resource Coordinator

    Brooke has a Bachelors degree from Ohio University in Communications and Psychology. Her passion to end sex trafficking started in 2009 when she interned at a jail where she performed interviews and psychoanalysis of the female inmates. She quickly discovered that all of these females had been abused as children, and never able to find recovery.  Her passion to start her own recovery house for sex-trafficked victims came after several years of never finding complete satisfaction in the corporate world. When researching sex-trafficking and rehabilitation centers she discovered Gracehaven. She now works as the Resource Coordinator where she works directly with the girls teaching life skills, while also performing administrative tasks. Brooke collabortes with community groups, coordinates volunteers, and is the contact person for general inquiries.

  • Jennifer Stokes, Education and Prevention Coordinator

    Jennifer has relevant experience in philanthropic studies, nursing, and social and human services. Her diverse background has allowed her to serve in many areas with a variety of populations: homeless outreach, disaster relief, with general and at-risk youth, as well as with survivors of sexual abuse and sex-trafficking.

    Jennifer’s passion and involvement in the anti-trafficking community began seven years ago after learning that this was happening in close, local communities. Jennifer has worked alongside organizations such as the Delaware County Anti-Trafficking Coalition, CATCH Court, Gracehaven, and via Gracehaven the Central Ohio Rescue and Restore Coalition (CORRC).

    Through education and awareness, it is Jennifer’s hope that one day there will no longer be a demand for sex-trafficking. The reality of that may be far from reach, so in the meantime it is her goal not only to empower youth, but to educate the public – specifically educators, law-enforcement, and service providers – bringing all to a common understanding regarding sex-trafficking and how to safely support survivors using a trauma-sensitive approach.
