Our multitude of programs allow us to meet the sexually-enslaved right where they are. We rely on trained volunteers and gracious donors to execute our programs and bring persons out of vicious cycles.
Four times each month, Love’s Arm volunteers head to the streets to initiate and nurture relationships with persons prostituting themselves. Offering prayer, hygiene supplies, a transitional resource list, we make ourselves available to assist when they are ready to exit the streets and end their addiction.
Strip Club Outreach
Each month a small group of ladies--most of which were redeemed out of the strip clubs--go in to initiate and nurture Jesus-centered relationships with people working in the strip club.
Ready Writers Team
For those who are incarcerated, mail is an open door of encouragement. The Ready Writers Team reaches out with hope, resources and God’s love to those we have met on the streets and students from our classes at the local detention facility.
This 12-step, life recovery group meets weekly to walk through the steps of addiction recovery with a foundation in the Scripture. The Upper Room offers a safe and confidential space as we walk through life one day at a time, one step at a time, and one breath at a time.
Intercessory Prayer GrouP
Love’s Arm believes prayer is the most valuable work of service for the Kingdom of God. We meet weekly on Monday nights at 7pm for a time of personal prayer and intercession for all aspects of the ministries.
INDUctIVE BIBLE STUDY
Partnering volunteer teams go into the local detention facility twice a month to lead women in the basics of learning to study the Bible for themselves. We ask relational life application questions in the context of Scripture and offer transitional and aftercare resources to the students who attend.
Our survivor helpline fields calls from persons who are struggling with life controlling issues usually involving addiction related behavior and severe sexual brokenness. Manning the helpline means you are anonymously making yourself available to listen and engage in caring conversation. If the caller identifies themselves as in crisis (in need of assistance) there is a questionnaire we use to help them identify and assess their needs. The volunteer also has access to an extensive resource list of agencies to use and is trained in proper response as well as trauma informed care related to Adverse Childhood Experiences/PTSD and Sexual Trauma. Our goal is to connect with the human heart in a way that build trust, respect and hope.
Rahab’s Rest is a 24-month cost free holistic recovery home for women exiting addiction related prostitution. In partnership with Thistle Farms in Nashville we established their Magdalene House program of cost free housing in Chattanooga, TN with a social enterprise model of employment and sustainability for our residents. During their two year stay with us community members receive holistic recovery through substance abuse treatment, healthcare - physical, mental and emotional as well as educational assistance, job preparation and training, financial management assistance and most importantly learning to love others like themselves.
