ARISE Ministry empowers individuals involved in the sex trade to reclaim their lives. This is a ministry of hope offering outreach, case management and spiritual care to individuals involved in the sex trade. ARISE means Advocacy and Reclaiming Individuals involved in the Sex trade through Empowerment. 

At ARISE Ministry, we value hope, love and justice and want this to be shown in every aspect of our ministry. Hope means that we honour each person’s journey and believe in a future worth having. Love means we will seek to live in and live out God’s love, believing that it is this radical love which reclaims lives. Justice means we will advocate for dignity and treat everyone with fairness and respect.

We are a mission of the Presbytery of East Toronto and a grant receiving ministry of the Presbyterian Church in Canada.
