Simone Halpin is the Executive Director and co-founder of Naomi’s House. Naomi’s House (NH) began in 2016 after years of preparing and researching the best way to serve Survivors of commercial sexual exploitation. The field to offer Survivors the best resources with trauma-informed, comprehensive, and faith-based services was narrow. NH created a model over five years that went from serving five women annually through residential services to hundreds of women annually in multiple programs across the Chicagoland area. Simone has served on the staff of The Moody Church since 2010, she serves on the Board of Directors of Collective Chicago, and is weekly contributor to The Next Level Podcast produced by her church, Glen Ellyn Bible Church. She met her husband, Anthony, while studying at Texas A&M University (B.S. in Health, ‘02), she a graduate of Moody Theological Seminary (M.A. in Biblical Studies, ‘08) and a doctoral student at Wheaton College pursuing her Doctor of Ministry. Simone and Anthony reside in Wheaton with their four children.
