A new society that aims to help sexually exploited women in Chilliwack received full support from elected officials over the weekend, at their first fundraiser.
PEARL Life Renewal Society was created by clinical counsellor Joan Goosen, with the help of Tamara Brown. Together they are hoping to create an open doorway for women who are being trafficked, living on the streets, or otherwise sexually exploited. They plan to offer those women support and services, along with hope for their future.
MP Mark Strahl was among the guests for the fundraiser, and he gave special recognition about the new society on Monday while in the House of Commons.
