Mon - Fri
meet our EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Tina Robinson
Tina Robinson was born as Tina Benschoter in Toledo, Ohio on June 12, 1966. She graduated high school from Perrysburg High School in 1984. In August of that year she went off to boot camp for the United States Army. Although, she was in the Army only 2 years, she very much enjoyed it. Between 1989-1992, Tina gave birth to 3 handsome boys. In 1995 she married the love of her life, and they have been together ever since. Tina had a crack addiction for 13 years, and on December 5, 2004 she broke that cycle and became drug free; she has been drug free ever since.
Tina felt God led her to attend college as a social worker, so she started at Owens Community College in 2007. After completing all her minor classes, she transferred to Lourdes University to complete her bachelor’s degree. Well, she did just that, she graduated in 2013 from Lourdes with her bachelor’s degree and has also received her Chemical Dependency Councilor’s Certificate ll for Substance Abuse.
The Lord led Tina to be highly involved with anti-human sex trafficking in 2012. This is when she started revamping a house that her church gave her to help women. In 2015, Tina started her own nonprofit named Butterflies 15. Butterflies 15 is the only residential housing program in NWO that houses adult women for 9-12 months that are survivors of human sex trafficking. Due to COVID-19 and financial costs the home is closed.
Butterflies 15 has now opened a Community Center for all women who have endured trauma, human trafficking, domestic violence and addiction.
“God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.” Hebrews 6:10
