Worth It

AN EMPOWERMENT PROGRAM FOR SURVIVORS OF SEXUAL EXPLOITATION

The Worth It program is a series of classroom experiences designed for women who have experienced sexual trauma from exploitation, trafficking or prostitution. The goal is to help participants connect with area service providers, maintain sobriety, and ultimately break the cycle of exploitation.  

Trauma is often the primary underlying factor that causes or perpetuates many societal issues like addiction, unemployment, fractured relationships and maladaptive behaviors. We believe healing begins when trauma is identified and addressed, and when meaningful relationships are made.

In-person Worth It sessions are held at various locations in Bucks, Montgomery, and Chester counties. Oftentimes churches, prisons, rehab facilities, or other community centers offer their space for Worth It staff to hold the class.

Alternatively, a virtual option was launched in 2021 so that we could reach and connect with survivors from around the country.

THE VALUE OF THIS PROGRAM IS REFLECTED IN THEIR WORDS

Here are some of the things the women from our first graduating class wanted to share with others.

"This program helped me, along with the help of some really amazing women, accept my past and move forward towards being the person I know I can be. I know now that I have a story to tell!"

D.M.

"This program is a wonderful way to learn about yourself. The HELP that we received is something that I’ll be forever grateful for, and I will carry the tools I’ve learned for the rest of my life. You are worth it!"

"I don’t think you understand how much you all impacted my health, my spirituality, and if I could ever sit across from god, I’d say thank you for lending you all to all of us! I actually went home and cried alone…I’ve learned more than I ever thought possible…Thank you for loving me until…I’m able to love myself. I’m on my way – You, me, we all are worth it!"

S.

"I truly feel blessed to be part of the Worth It program. It has given my life purpose."
