MISSION CAPSULE: ARISE Ministry offers compassionate outreach and spiritual care to survivors of sexual exploitation living in the Greater Toronto Area. Inspired by Jesus’ healing of the woman who was afflicted for 18 years with a condition that kept her bent over (Luke 13:10-17) ARISE aims to help those who have been living “bent over” by exploitation, trauma, abuse and addiction. Staff and volunteers work with vulnerable women, youth and children by providing one-on-one, goal oriented support. As relationships strengthen, hope and empowerment are fostered, making it possible for futures to be reclaimed. Like the woman in the gospel of Luke, several women that ARISE has helped are now standing straight and tall and God continues to do amazing things in their lives. This is a reason to rejoice!

GREAT LAKES: Not only is Lake Erie the smallest Great Lake when it comes to volume, but it is surrounded by the most industry. Seventeen metropolitan areas each with populations of over 50,000 border the Lake Erie basin.

During the war of 1812 the U.S. beat the British in a naval battle called the Battle of Lake Erie, forcing them to abandon Detroit.

The shoreline of all the Great Lakes combined equals nearly 44% of the circumference of the planet.
