“WE WANTED TO PAY TRIBUTE TO ONE OF THE MOST ICONIC FEMALES IN HISTORY. OVER THE YEARS MARY HAS BECOME SORT OF THE IDEAL. THE WAY SHE HAS BEEN DEPICTED SHOWS A VERY LIMITED SIDE OF BEAUTY. YOU ALMOST FORGET SHE WAS HUMAN. HISTORY IS BUILT ON GREAT WOMAN WHO ACCOMPLISHED GREAT THINGS. WHERE INSPIRED BY THEM BECAUSE OF THEIR HUMANITY. THAT WAS OUR GOAL, TO SHOW A GLIMPSE OF HUMANITY. WHEN YOU REMOVE THE BARRIERS OF TIME AND CULTURE YOU START TO SEE THE REAL WOMAN. MARY WAS SO MUCH MORE THAN THE QUITE VIRGIN WE HAVE LIMITED HER TOO. MARY WAS A WOMAN THAT CHOSE TO BE STRONG, TO GO AGAINST THE CULTURE OF HER TIME AND IF SHE HAD FAITH, IF SHE BELIEVED, WE NEED TO ASK OURSELVES, WHY NOT US?”

“WHEN YOU REMOVE THE BARRIERS OF TIME AND CULTURE, YOU START TO SEE THE REAL WOMAN”

“GOD HAS SHAPED THIS WORLD THROUGH ALL DIFFERENT TYPES OF PEOPLE. DESPITE  OUR GENDER, SKIN, OR BELIEF, ONE THING WE HAVE IN COMMON IS OUR HUMANITY. NONE ARE GREATER THAN THE CAUSES WE FIGHT FOR. MARY MADE A CHOICE. ITS THE GREATEST THING THAT DEFINES HER OR ANY WOMAN. SHE MADE A CHOICE.”

TREASURES OUTREACH

TREASURES OUTREACH EFFORTS ARE FOCUSED ON STRIP CLUBS, JUVENILE DETENTION CENTERS, THE PORN INDUSTRY AND IN ONLINE FORUMS WHERE WOMEN AND GIRLS ARE EXPLOITED AND SOLICITED FOR SEX.

EACH YEAR, THE TREASURES TEAM REACHES 5,000-7,000 WOMEN WORKING IN 170 STRIP CLUBS IN LOS ANGELES AND LAS VEGAS. WE GIVE THEM GIFT BAGS FILLED WITH COSMETICS, JEWELRY AND THE SIMPLE MESSAGE THAT THEY ARE LOVED, VALUED AND PURPOSED, AND THAT SUPPORT IS AVAILABLE TO THEM. WE BRING THIS SAME MESSAGE OF HOPE TO COMMERCIALLY SEXUALLY EXPLOITED CHILDREN (CSEC) DURING OUR OUTREACHES IN JUVENILE DETENTION CENTERS, AS WELL AS IN ONLINE FORUMS AND TO AN HIV TESTING SITE FOR WOMEN IN PORN.

MENTORING
THE CARE TEAM PROVIDES PEER MENTORING, ENCOURAGEMENT, AND A LISTENING EAR AS WOMEN SHARE THEIR LIFE EXPERIENCES AND CURRENT STRUGGLES.

SUPPORT GROUP
TREASURES ALSO  OFFERS A THERAPIST-LED SUPPORT GROUP FOR WOMEN WHO ARE OR HAVE BEEN, IN THE SEX INDUSTRY. THIS IS A SAFE PLACE WHERE WOMEN CAN EXPERIENCE PEER SUPPORT, COMMUNITY, AND AN OPPORTUNITY FOR HEALING AND RESTORATION.
