Arise exists to empower survivors of sex trafficking and exploitation, while enhancing the social landscape and commerce of our city.

Our bakery is a social enterprise that empowers survivors of sex trafficking and exploitation to “arise” as the decision-making agent in their own lives. This is accomplished by providing them tools for living everyday life, pursuing wholeness and healing physically, emotionally and spiritually, allowing them to explore their passions and abilities while filling various positions at the bakery, and providing them a steady, living wage income from which they can create the stability they need.
