Leadership Team

Beckie Starkey

President | Co-Founder

God has impressed a burden on Beckie’s heart to meet the needs of women in crisis, especially victims of sex trafficking. She has filled roles in corporate America, education, women’s ministry, and homesteading.

Valerie Beck

Vice President | Co-Founder

While praying with a distraught woman, Valerie first learned about girls being trafficked in 2012. She returned home that evening determined to learn more. Valerie immediately began to ask God how He might use her and eventually became involved in local anti-trafficking ministries. She also championed efforts in her home church to bring awareness to sex trafficking and how pornography fuels the demand. Because Jesus has rescued, redeemed, and restored her life, Valerie is passionate about sharing His love with others.
