Just Speak Incorporated is a trauma-centered advocacy that provides crisis support and resiliency programming for 3 to 18-year-olds. The goal is to offer a safe space to find and exercise their own voice, and also to become agents of awareness in the community.
Just Speak, Incorporated was developed by founder and CEO Brittni Kellom in 2003, after suffering four years of severe sexual and emotional abuse from her biological father. Initially sharing one survivor story as a voice for many, Just Speak, Inc. has evolved as an organization with award winning programming, workshops and presentations; and it collaborates with various social and domestic organizations across Southeast Michigan. In 2016, Just Speak was the recipient of the 2016 Governor’s Service Award for Outstanding Volunteer Programs.
Just Speak, Incorporated is committed to empowering every young survivor of child sexual abuse, sexual assault, and emotional/physical abuse within a safe space to share stories and collaborate in a way that leads to their involvement in the community as advocates.
OUR FUTURE goals include providing legal advocates, psychological and medical resources and support from other survivors as well as safe and professional forensic interviewing in partnership with the judicial system within one facility. We seek to provide comprehensive and holistic support for the emotional, physical and educational needs of our survivors.
