Guest: President and Founder of the Kristy Love Foundation - Angela Renfro
Angela is the Founder of the Kristy Love Foundation Inc. Her selflessness and leadership has enhanced the quality of life for so many girls and women. The Kristy Love Foundation is a SURVIVOR-led, trauma informed program that provides comprehensive services for girls and women suffering from addiction, prostitution and human trafficking. We strive to "provide services with a listening ear to a silent heart" so that all “SURVIVORS” may heal in a safe place, become confident, financially self-sufficient and develop healthy relationships with their families and in their communities, All of our work is informed by our founder and executive director, Angela Renfro, who lived through sexual abuse, prostitution, addiction and human trafficking from the age of 3 to age 29. When she escaped, she rebuilt her life and gave her breath, sweat, and tears for her freedom from modern day slavery.
Angela took a heartfelt inspiration and watched it blossom into a global aspiration to stop human trafficking. Angela is currently living in Louisville Kentucky with her family. Angela is a member of Survivor Counsel for Kentucky General Attorney Andy Beshear, Coalition for the Homeless and Coalition Supporting Young Adults and member of Statewide Human Trafficking Task Force.
She will be featured as one of the Faces of Compassion for “Festival of Faith” DALAI LAMI at the Yum Center. Angela is not only, a “SURVIVOR” but she is currently a student at Jefferson Technical Community College. She will continue her studies as a transfer student at the University of Louisville for her Bachelor of Arts degree at Kent School for Social Work.
Our goal is that every survivor becomes a productive member of society. Our number one priority is the safety of a survivor. It is the most important secret garden to the Kristy Love Foundation.
