Chilliwack – Pearl Life Renewal Society has been in the news lately as they are trying to open a facility to assist sex trade workers in getting off the streets.
From their website: Pearl Life is a team of dedicated individuals and volunteers seeking the wellbeing of sexually exploited girls and women in Chilliwack.
Executive Director Jane Goosen told FVN: We may have found a facility for PEARL to lease, a heritage house four blocks from downtown Chilliwack. However, we need to gain a permit to operate a drop-in resource centre in a residential area. Part of that process requires us to engage with the neighbours, prior to a City Council Hearing (sometime in May) in attempting to address their concerns. What we need from you, in addition to your prayers for support for PEARL from the neighbours, is letters we can share at that City Council Hearing on why our city needs a ministry like PEARL. Please send those letters to email@example.com
Also, PEARL is accepting applications for a part time Administrative Assistant position.
