The Keeping Innocent Sisters Safe (K.I.S.S.) Project
The Keeping Innocent Sisters Safe Project is committed to working closely in support of prison chaplaincy and assisting the work of the church behind bars. We are currently working to reach out to women incarcerated in the Clark County Detention Center. Our outreaches have included personal visitation, mentoring, Bible studies, cultural events, and provision of literature for libraries, all designed to improve the quality of life behind bars.
In addition to ministering in the Clark County Detention Center, we have worked with the Juvenile Public Defender’s Office and the Family Court specializing in providing services for underage prostitutes. Sadly, in 2007 alone, over 400 children were found working as prostitutes in Las Vegas during a single month. It has been reported that many girls are as young as 12 years old when they turn their first trick. Our focus includes intervention, as well as enjoying times of fellowship and teaching through personal visits and the Sister to Sister program.
The vision of the ministry is to teach former and transitioning prostitutes to make positive life choices that enable them to maximize their potential. Our goal is a community in which every young woman experiences a nurturing one-on-one relationship and support through the church. In turn, this establishes positive character traits and increases the young woman’s ability to make responsible decisions as involved members of our community.
