About The Foundation

Our Children's Keeper Foundation, Inc was created to help end modern day slavery of child sex trafficking and recover abducted and missing children in Atlanta and surrounding areas. OCK works to prevent the sexual exploitation of youth and helps current victims find confidence, strength and stability beyond the limitations of their current lifestyle.

At Our Chidren's Keeper, we are dedicated to "BEING THE VOICE FOR THE MISSING & VOICELESS" by providing a platform of hope for the overwhelming number of missing persons of color. Together, we can and will make a difference and bring OUR children home!

Our Children's Keeper is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.

Our Founder

Genise Shelton, the newest addition to season 4 cast of Bravo’s Married to Medicine and rapidly becoming a Woman of Power in Atlanta. Genise is a mother of six and married to the love of her life, Dr. Courtney Shelton. Through the power of of media, Genise has established a constant connection with people across the country. As a business owner, producer, tv host, actress and model, she has educated, entertained, and uplifted countless viewers for the past two decades.

As a voice for social change and awareness, Genise is very passionate about platforms that affect the very foundation of our community - homelessness, sex trafficking of minors, and domestic abuse of children. Genise has witnessed, first hand, the impact that both can have on an individual; her grandmother was a foster parent for abused and neglected children for over twenty years and sadly, a dear friend of Genise was abused and later murdered by her husband. Through these life-changing experiences, Genise has committed her gift of communication to foster dialogue, awareness, and resolutions to these issues.
