Journey with us
ARISE believes that everyone has a future worth having, and case management is where we come together to work towards the future. This goal-based program meets the participant where they are at to begin setting the path for where they want to be, and how we can journey there together.
Everyone has a seat at God's table and LunChurch is a time where we bring this to life. Once a month, all members of the ARISE community gather to break bread and join one another in fellowship for a homemade community meal.
We are always accepting food contributions for our meal-based programs. Check out "Support Us" for more information.

This where ARISE is known as "The Pretty Bag Ladies." Once a week, ARISE staff and incredible volunteers walk the strolls of Downtown Toronto handing out our famous "pretty bags" and build connections with those working at street-level.
We are always accepting contributions for our pretty bag supplies. Check out "Support Us" for more information.

Knowledge is power, and ARISE is available to help all groups get the knowledge they need to help keep their communities safe by engaging audiences around the subject of human trafficking, exploitation, and how ARISE works to be the light in the darkness for survivors.
Sojourners was born from a common wish shared by our participants to simply "have a friend." ARISE pairs participants with vetted volunteers from the ARISE community to build mutual connections through regular contact and shared time together.
