Our History

Gray Haven was established as a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit in September 2010 by founders, Josh and Andrea Bailey who sought advice from experienced anti-trafficking experts and professionals to develop a program that would empower clients to move from “victim” to “survivor.”

Recognizing that each client is unique, Gray Haven's program was designed to provide effective and lasting care that adapts to each client’s specific needs and situation. The first referral was received in February 2012. Over the years, the organization has learned, adopted best practices, and matured. Experienced and talented professionals in social work, mental health, and psychology have joined the team. As a result, Gray Haven has developed into a resource for local, state and federal law enforcement, as well as a subject matter expert for other organizations striving to serve trafficking victims.

Gray Haven not only provides wrap-around survivor care services and comprehensive case management, but a strong and connected Central Virginia community surrounding and supporting each individual. 

Today, Gray Haven continues to grow, mature, and strengthen its community network and services to survivors of human trafficking.
