Megan Brown, Miranda Ballard, Audra King, and Mary Sellers were brought together by a shared passion to end human trafficking in Northeast Arkansas. They founded Hope Found of Northeast Arkansas to educate their community and coordinate services for victims and survivors of human trafficking. 
Since its founding, Hope Found has educated thousands of students, parents, law enforcement, educators, social service professionals, and health care providers to recognize and prevent human trafficking in their sphere of influence. Hope Found board members and volunteers continue to provide education and resources for local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies.

Hope Found is a 501c3 tax exempt organization with a 10-member board of directors and six-member advisory board. Members work together in developing Hope Found’s ongoing strategy for offering educational services in the community and increasing the resources it can provide to victims and survivors. The end goal is to establish a fully-funded and operational survivor restoration campus to serve survivors of human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation.

In 2020, Hope Found was asked to join the Department of Homeland Security's Human Trafficking Task Force in Northeast Arkansas to focus on providing resources to victims recovered by law enforcement. 

In 2022, Hope Found was selected as Agency of the Year by the NEA National Association of Social Workers.
