Erica Greve is the Founder and CEO of Unlikely Heroes, a non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing and restoring child victims of slavery worldwide. With restoration homes located in the Philippines, Thailand, Mexico and the United States, Unlikely Heroes is providing hope and freedom to some of the most vulnerable children in the world.
Erica earned her MSW in Social Welfare from UC Berkeley. She has used her academic and real world experience to develop and implement effective prevention, rescue, and aftercare programs for the rehabilitation and restoration of sexually exploited children.
In 2014, after the kidnapping of 276 girls in Chibok, Nigeria, Erica and her team were invited to provide emergency medical services, trauma counseling and direct support to some of the escaped schoolgirls and many of the mothers who were waiting to see the return of their daughters.
Major media outlets, including Forbes, Yahoo News, Sky News and TEDx, have regularly featured the accomplishments of Erica and Unlikely Heroes.
