PROS Network

The purpose of the PROS Network is to connect individuals that by choice, circumstance or coercion, engage in sexual activities in exchange for money or other survival needs to non-judgmental and culturally appropriate services and resources, and create connections to improve information about providing professional support and care to individuals involved in the sex trade.

The PROS Network was created to help bridge the stigma and criminalization that often prevents individuals involved in the sex trade from seeking and receiving culturally competent, relevant and affirming support from helping professionals. Similar projects exist in Chicago andNew York cities. We hope to extend their models to Philadelphia and launch an officially in Spring 2014.

  1. I really hope I an at the right place. I googled relief for sex workers in Philadelphia during pandemic and the red umbrella and this organization came up. I would really like some more information and the steps I need to take to apply for it. Thank you so much!
