Tiffin, Ohio — On Wednesday, Sisters In Shelter, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting survivors and raising awareness about human trafficking, announced the appointment of Jennifer Kin as their new Director and Constancia Russell as the new Case Manager.

Jennifer Kin brings a wealth of experience to her new role, with a background in law enforcement and a proven track record of leadership and organizational skills. Throughout her career in law enforcement, she encountered the harrowing realities of human trafficking, which fueled her passion to aid women who have been victimized by this crime. Jennifer is also committed to developing community awareness programs and educational initiatives on human trafficking for both youth and parents.

“I want to give back to the community and empower women who can’t speak for themselves,” said Kin.

Meanwhile, Constancia Russell, an educator by profession, joins the team as the Case Manager. With her multilingual abilities and compassionate nature, she has demonstrated a strong dedication to making a positive impact on the lives of others. Constancia’s expertise lies in providing support, advocacy, and individualized plans for survivors. She is determined to utilize her skills to empower survivors and contribute to the well-being of the community.

Amy Reinhart, the Board Chair of Sisters In Shelter, expressed enthusiasm about the new additions to the organization’s leadership team. “The Board is excited to bring Jennifer and Constancia into the organization,” she stated. “We expect engaging new programs, an increase in community awareness, and the ability to help more women with our new leadership team.”

Thanks to the hiring of Kin and Russell, Sisters In Shelter is now able to reopen its shelter, which provides essential medical and emotional care, safety, and support for women who have experienced the profound trauma of human trafficking. The shelter has recently undergone updates to ensure a clean and secure environment for these women as they take steps towards rebuilding their lives.

Founded in 2005, Sisters In Shelter has been a steadfast advocate in the fight against human trafficking. The organization offers critical services to survivors, including emergency safe housing, medical care, safety planning, and legal advocacy. Their commitment to community education and advocacy has helped shed light on the atrocities of human trafficking.
