Meet The Board 

Aside from our amazing team of counselors, Arukah has board of women who go above and beyond to see that the vision and goals of Arukah come into fruition. They are behind the scenes, making sure that Arukah continues to serve the community.


Lauren Slade


With a passion for helping women break free from the pain that is holding them back, Lauren uses her story to help other women experience restoration. She believes that the first step to achieving freedom is being vulnerable enough to admit that we need help. As the Founder/Director of Arukah, it is her mission for women who have experienced having an abortion to understand that they still have a future. She aims to create an environment where women feel that they can truly be themselves and place it all on the table. That is where healing and restoration can truly take place.  Lauren understands the importance of families and seeks to bridge the gap by meeting the needs of families in the community. She believes that we are stronger together and focuses on partnering with organizations to make a greater impact on those that Arukah serves.
