ARISE is very proud to have Angel Power, acclaimed author and graduate of our case management program on staff at ARISE Ministry as a Peer Support Worker.
We are also proud to share poignant quotes by Angel:
“You are alive. You are capable and strong.
You wish for peace and happiness; for this we all long.
You are human. You are a woman. You are an individual.
You are perfectly broken and forever whole.”
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.
