Heather Pounds Pagán is an over-comer who has used her past to build up her future. Heather was enslaved to a lifestyle of sexual exploitation, drugs, homelessness, abandonment, abuse, and hopelessness for 18+ years. In 2008, Heather was sentenced to the South Carolina Department of Corrections where she served two years and was completely transformed. While incarcerated, Heather found that this time could be a time of hope for her; a time where she could begin to rebuild herself. She began to submerge herself in bible studies, volunteer work at the chapel, and other life group related activities. This is where Heather started to build her hope in knowing that when she left the bars of SCDC, she would never have to return again. In 2010 when Heather was released, she began to get involved in her community by doing outreach work, service work in her area, speaking to youth and young adults about making good choices and empowering them to also make a difference in their own communities. Heather is married to Sam Pagán a man that was completely designed by God just for her as he helps her to know good men DO exists! Heather is employed by Lighthouse for Life, a local Human Trafficking organization as their “Survivor Support Director.”
