Innovative Alternatives is proud to honor Jennifer Hohman at its upcoming Legacy of Leadership 30th Anniversary Gala on February 22, 2019, in the Hilton Hotel’s Grand Ballroom at the prestigious University of Houston.

Jennifer Hohman is a wife, mom and native Houstonian who is a Director of Information Technology in the oil and gas industry. She has been known to organize community events and charitable functions until one day when sex trafficking got too close to home. In her words, “It woke me the hell up to one of the most complex epidemics my city has ever seen!”.  To quickly get up to speed she started collaborating with 30+ anti sex trafficking nonprofit leaders in the Houston area to understand the services, gaps and areas that needed strengthening, thus was formed, the Houston Area Against Trafficking (HAAT) initiative . 

She is now trying to wake a sleeping giant, her community,  and is a community leader and advocate for victims and survivors determined to create massive awareness regarding prevention, intervention, and recovery via community uprising and corporate involvement.   To do so, a group of the top 20% of influential Houston leaders are coming together to get behind this movement, they are The Houston 20! They are raising funds for Emergency Assessment Centers, Long Term Aftercare/Residential Treatment Centers and Outreach and Intervention. 

In order to engage the corporate community, Jennifer and other business colleagues created the Oil and Gas Trafficking Advocacy (OGTAG) group to collaborate on ideas and initiatives to mobilize the energy industry to join the fight against sex trafficking.

To wake up a community, mobilize the 4th largest city in the nation and to combat this atrocity and epidemic, is a social movement called #FightForUS!  This is the voice of victims, survivors and citizens saying #NotInOurCity…finding our voice and fighting back! Recently this movement had a huge impact on federal and state level legislation, primarily with lobbying for FOSTA/SESTA HR1865 – Fight Online Sex Trafficking Amendment and will continue that momentum in the 2019 Texas State Legislative Session.

Innovative Alternatives is proud to honor Jennifer Hohman who so clearly champions causes so near to what we do every day helping crime victims and their families begin to put their lives back together.
