Kathy Ylostalo, Director of ARK2Freedom


A first-hand witness of God’s divine intervention in our lives, Kathy is mom to two, wife to one, and passionate about healing for all.  Through her own personal growth, public school teaching, and leading recovery groups, God prepared Kathy’s heart to serve the community through her role as Director of ARK2Freedom Ministries at Hope for the Hungry.   Kathy considers her work a privilege… having a front row seat to see Christ’s restorative work in our community as He raises up His army to fight human trafficking and to free His children in Bell County, Central Texas, and beyond.
In her role at Hope for the Hungry, Kathy supervises volunteers, trains the public about Human Trafficking, works with the Central Texas DMST Round Table, and directs future plans and initiatives in ARK2Freedom’s mission to reduce supply and demand of human trafficking.  She is totally convinced that the only solution to TRUE DARKNESS of human trafficking is TRUE LIGHT.  When light enters a room, the darkness is obliterated.  Jesus is that TRUE LIGHT and He is SHATTERING THE DARKNESS.

Life Verse:  “The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners,” Isaiah 61:1
