Nicole Moehring is the Founder of Voices of Change 2018(VOC), a nonprofit organization. Their mission is to reduce the risk of sexual abuse for children with disabilities. Nicole’s daughter and son, who is autistic, were both victims of sexual abuse and assault. As a mother suffering through this unbelievable nightmare, Nicole witnessed the differences in the justice system of how her daughter was believed and treated so well, and her son was not. Nicole quickly began to realize how difficult the road to justice is for an individual with a disability. Nicole was made to feel as if what happened to her son did not matter. VOC was founded to educate families so no other family would ever feel as Nicole and her family did while living this unthinkable nightmare.
Nicole is a first-time author of “Finding Myself – Overcoming Abuse, Heartbreak and Loss Then, Finding True Love” and currently writing her second book, “Finding My Voice.”
She serves on the Ohio Attorney General Committee for Crime Victims with Disabilities. In 2021, Nicole received the Crucial Point Award. An annual award given to people and organizations that delve beyond the surface of sex crimes to focus on overlooked niches of survivorship. Bringing these specific topics to mainstream platforms to increase public awareness and effectively drive social change. Nicole is working with legislators to change current and pass new laws to enforce stronger policies and best practices for child abuse reporting and how cases are being processed.”
Nicole has over 25 years of experience in management in corporate, non-profit and healthcare environments. For the past 18 years, Nicole has dedicated her time to volunteering for various non-profit and community organizations, including; The Polycystic Kidney Foundation (PKD); Fragile X Alliance of Ohio; Trials for Hope and The Children's Center of Medina County, to name a few.
Nicole resides in Hinckley, OH with her husband, Chris and her two children.
