RACHEL WHITE, LMHC
Founder & Executive Director
Rachel is a licensed counselor, an ambassador and advocate for trafficking victims, and the founder of Her Song Jacksonville where young ladies from Jacksonville and all over the nation find refuge in the aftermath of human trafficking. Rachel led Her Song to open the first residential safe homes with comprehensive programs in the Northeast Florida area for sex trafficking victims closing a gap in services for the First Coast.
Kelly has been with Her Song since its inception in early 2013. Her involvement with the organization was born out of a desire to give hope to survivors for a renewed life and inspire women to walk in freedom. She is currently serving as the Director of Programs where she oversees Her Song’s residential programs and also coordinates the organization’s outreach efforts within the community as well as inside the local Department of Corrections.
