Do you have a heart for women in the sex industry? Do you want to get trained for outreach?
Treasures, founded by Harmony Dust Grillo, a former stripper, is one of the world’s leading sex industry outreach and care training organizations. We met Harmony when we interviewed her for Red Light Green Light, a documentary on prostitution and sex trafficking. She’s an example of someone who’s turned a difficult past into an effective opportunity, and as a result many are finding hope and healing.
On March 17-18, Treasures is running their annual training course for those interested in doing outreach in their own community. Whether you’re a social worker, a church leader, a police officer, a youth worker, or just someone with a passion to do outreach, this is for you.

Here’s what’s included:
- 2 training days – core training on Friday and care intensive on Saturday
