ICT SOS is a Wichita-based organization. We act as a liaison between specific local professional organizations that work with at-risk and trafficked youth or adults and the Wichita volunteers who seek to find solutions! By connecting local agencies with volunteers and resources, ICT SOS helps facilitate their missions of fighting sex trafficking.
Jennifer is the founder and executive director of ICT SOS. In 2011, she became aware of the needs in the community regarding the issues of human trafficking and set out to find solutions that partnered the professionals with volunteers and community members. Since that time, the organization has grown to include multiple programs and amazing staff as well as yearly practicum placements. Jennifer is a lifelong Wichitan, lover of tacos, and Mister Rogers and mom to two amazing kids.
