Tajuan McCarty is the Founder of The WellHouse, a nonprofit, faith-based and Christ-centered agency dedicated to rescuing women from sexual exploitation/human trafficking. Her professional experience includes leadership positions in which she has assisted women ex-offenders re-enter society; helped implement Alabama’s first program devoted to helping chronically homeless, severely mentally ill women, and as a social worker for the AL DHR. She holds Master degrees in Public Health and Public Administration, as well as a Bachelor of Science in Social Work from UAB. Tajuan is uniquely qualified to be a forerunner in the fight against trafficking. At 15, she was sexually exploited by her “boyfriend-turned-pimp,” and trafficked to Birmingham so many times it became her home. She is a passionate advocate for victims of sexual exploitation and human trafficking. Tajuan was recognized as one of The Top 20 Women Who Make a Difference in Birmingham, accepted The FBI Director's Community Leadership Award on behalf of The WellHouse, was recognized as The A-List by B-Metro Magazine and Faces of Birmingham with Style BluePrint Magazine both in January, 2015, and featured as An Everyday Hero in Good Housekeeping, March 2015.
