Meet HCI’s New Direct Care Coordinator, Morgan Jicka
What does it mean to be the Direct Care Coordinator at Hope Center Indy (HCI)? This role is responsible for managing the Take Heart Residential program, including ensuring the sex trafficking survivors in residence, as well as the residential technicians and volunteers that work with them, feel safe and supported.
Morgan Jicka was looking for a new career opportunity after completing her masters when she heard about the job opening for Direct Care Coordinator.
“I have always wanted to work with survivors of trafficking,” says Morgan. “When I found Hope Center Indy, I immediately felt at home and knew that this was where God wanted me to serve.”
With a bachelors in psychology, a masters in ministry, and experience working in child welfare, Morgan knows what it’s like to serve those who have experienced trauma.
“In this new role I am able to interact with the residents, while also contributing to the administrative side of the program and ministry. This role has combined my past experience into one job beautifully.”
Running the Take Heart Residential program is no small task. Morgan is responsible for making sure the residents receive clothing, hygiene products, and anything else they might need. She makes sure things are going well between them and their residential technician. She responds to emergency situations, organizes transportation for the residents – the list goes on.
HCI is excited to have Morgan as part of the team. Her experience and faith will be a tremendous witness to both the residents and staff.
“I am excited to see what God will do in the lives of the women we serve,” says Morgan. “I am also excited to see how God plans to grow me in my time working at Hope Center Indy. I know this is where He wants me to be!”
HCI would also like to take this time to congratulate and thank Jenn Star, the previous Direct Care Coordinator on her promotion to Program Director.
