ARISE Ministry Programs


Our programs are based on our core values and built around the needs and care of the community that we serve.

By creating a place of belonging, by giving hope for the future, and through advocating for the rights of our clients, our programs cover a range of issues and needs. We are proud to provide the following innovative programming:

Case Management

Sojourners Program

Outreach

Pastoral Care

Self-Defence


Case Management

ARISE offers a goal-oriented, one-on-one case management program for those who are or have been involved in the sex trade and those at risk of sexual exploitation. The case management program works with each participant on the goals they identify as important and the program is individualized for each participant. Weekly meeting includes a check-in, life skills, and goal setting. The case management program has also been offered as a preventative program for at-risk youth and/or for those in recovery who might need some stability.


Sojourners Program

ARISE Ministry’s Sojourners Program has been created to build intentional friendships between our Case Management Participants and a group of committed, trained, and vetted volunteers. This is not intended to be a mentorship program; we believe in the invaluable strengths each person will contribute to this friendship and invite participants and volunteers to intentionally cultivate this friendship together.

The Sojourners Program is a minimum six-month program where community connections are established for all participants whereby they feel supported in their lives through both group and one-on-one interactions, fostering a sense of belonging that exceeds beyond the time and space of the Sojourners Program.


Outreach

ARISE Ministry provides street outreach to individuals involved in the sex trade Thursday nights from 11:30pm.

Through outreach we seek to build relationships and provide support. Preventative outreach is provided through a partnership with a group home, staff attend every other week to support at-risk youth and provide resources to staff.

Our outreach programming also includes preventative programming for the greater community – we offer a preventative and awareness raising program for facilitation with schools and community youth programs.


Pastoral Care

ARISE offers chaplaincy and pastoral care to the community through accompaniment, advocacy, court support, hospital and jail visits.

ARISE offers many pastoral services to community members, including home blessings, participating in Public Worship, Funeral and Memorial Services, and offering the Sacraments.
