Jessica Nelson


Jessica is called to those trapped in addiction, homelessness, and trauma. From her own lived experience with addiction and being set free, she understands and wants to come alongside those looking to make a change.

She has worked with the at-risk and vulnerable population for almost 14 years and desires to see youth and young adults come to Jesus. By showing the love of God, walking the journey through relationship-building and sharing her own story, lives are restored and hope is found.

Jessica was born and raised in Victoria and is married with four children. She loves to read a good book and encourage others. She also has a deep passion to work with those caught in the sex trade and survivors of human trafficking.
