Angela Renfro


Angela is the Founder of the Kristy Love Foundation Inc. Her selflessness, service and leadership have enhanced the quality of life for 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. The Foundation strives 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. All work is informed by 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. She is currently living in Louisville, Kentucky with her family. She is a member of the Survivor Counsel for Kentucky General Attorney Andy Beshear, the Coalition for the Homeless, the Coalition Supporting Young Adults and the Statewide Human Trafficking Task Force. Angela will be featured in Faces of Compassion for the “Festival of Faiths” DALAI LAMI at the Yum Center. She is not only a “SURVIVOR,” she is a student at Jefferson Community and Technical College and is transferring to the Kent School for Social Work at the University of Louisville to pursue her bachelor's degree.
