Time to Thrive: Join Thriving

Thriving is one of our programs at BWSS that is carefully-designed to support the diverse needs of women with lived experience in sex economies in setting and achieving their goals.

Thriving offers a non-judgmental space where participants can meet one-on-one with a support worker to explore trauma and coping, build healthy coping tools, develop their support system and/or explore options for meeting their everyday needs including: housing, legal advocacy, treatment, clothing, emergency shelter, safety planning, support groups, and many other goals.

We have a new workshop that will help you thrive!

Thriving is a safe, confidential place for women with experience in sex economies to build community and empowerment every Thursday evening from 6 to 8 pm starting on Thursday, October 22, 2020.

A $20 gift card will be provided to each participant after every workshop.
