board of directors


  • REV. GINGER COAKLEY

    Co-Founder and Executive Director

    My name is Ginger, I am amazed that God called me to lead something like this. Eden’s Glory is an act of courage and obedience, EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. It is also an honor to have a front row seat to the transforming power and grace of God. In 2010 I was completely unaware that slavery still existed. When I heard, I devoured information from statistics to documentaries, to narrative accounts. I was heart broken at the reality. I was angered by the injustice, and I was CALLED to do something about it. So I quit my job, moved to Illinois, got married, bought a house, had a baby, and started a ministry all in the same year. Crazy! We have been open since September 2015 and have served 7 women so far. We could tell you so so many stories!

  • Aaron Fritzgerald-TREASURER  

    Accounting Analyst,

    Archer Daniels Midland Company

    I am very passionate about the work that the Set Free Movement is doing with human trafficking. Eden’s Glory’s mission and purpose is close to my wife and I’s heart.  Being that stable support and love for those who have had their identity taken from them is work worth doing.  I want to be a part of the solution that ends human trafficking in our world today and the restoration of survivors is an important piece of the puzzle.  I believe that with my calling for Eden's Glory is to provide the skills that Eden’s Glory needs to lay a firm foundation to grow and be that stable support for those who need restoration


  • KELLY GRIFFITH--Interim President

    IL Law Enforcement Training and Standards Board (ILETSB)

    Kelly is a licensed attorney and has spent the majority of her career working on behalf of victims of sexual assault and sexual abuse. Even after almost fifteen years of helping victims of sexual exploitation, it was not until 2012 that she became aware of the enormous issue of human trafficking. She felt God was leading her to do more to support those trapped in the dark world of slavery, and she serves on the Board of Eden’s Glory with the prayer that women will come to know the love and redemption of Jesus Christ.

  • Felicia George

    Team leader for Set Free Movement,

    Monterey Bay

    God has blessed me greatly with the opportunity to speak for those that can't. My primary area of focus is in education and awareness with middle and high school aged youth. I love being able to speak to people of all ages about how they can recognize the signs of human trafficking and give them the tools to also be an activist in the fight against it. My involvement with Eden's Glory gives me another opportunity to serve those affected by this crime. It's a blessing in my life knowing we are changing futures for the better for these survivors.
