Charlene Heydorn

After a personal encounter with a young girl who was being trafficked, Charlene Heydorn founded Redeeming Love in January 2014. Redeeming Love is dedicated to providing long term housing and comprehensive recovery services for girls being trafficked in the U.S. In addition to housing, they provide ongoing trauma therapy, life skills, job skills and job placement to help survivors in the program. Charlene lives each day committed to doing whatever it takes to see that more trafficked victims have a safe space to heal, grow, and learn that their life has unique value and purpose.  For more information on Charlene and Redeeming Love, please visit
