Purchased

Women

Women and girls are bought and sold every day in Fort Worth. Through purchased, we offer women survivors of trafficking, prostitution, and addiction a supportive community of advocates. Many of these women want to escape this life, but simply don't know how.

The women who are victims of sexual exploitation in our community are bought and sold, trapped in cycles of abuse, addiction, and incarceration. This is slavery. And that’s why The Net’s message through purchased is that:

These women are not for sale.

By participating in Purchased and our other relationship-based programs, a rapidly growing number of women in our city now have the opportunity to completely escape and recover from sexual exploitation. 

Through weekly jail outreach, court support, and a survivor support group, we’re helping these women rediscover their inherent value and understand that they can have freedom, safety, and hope.

One phrase we often hear from women who have escaped the sex industry and overcome addiction is that Purchased has helped them find peace for the first time in a long time. You can’t put a price on peace and these women are being reminded that no one can put a price on them.

Purchased is led by The Net’s Jordan McKenna, and there are many opportunities to get involved. Whether you’re looking to volunteer as soon as possible or you want to go through Purchased training to take a more hands-on role, we have a place for you. You can also donate to The Net to financially invest in a Fort Worth free from poverty.

The Worthy co.

The Worthy Co is a social enterprise of The NET that offers women who have survived trafficking, prostitution, and addiction safe and supportive employment.
We provide vocational skills and a real work history for women in the Purchased program as they create products available for purchase by you!

100% of every purchase paves the way for more women to come off the street and into recovery.

MASE

Men Against Sexual Exploitation, or M.A.S.E., seeks to eliminate the demand for commercial sex in Fort Worth. Led by men to reach men, M.A.S.E. is working to educate & equip men to change the culture around the objectification & purchasing of women. From there, we want to mobilize them to engage & disrupt sex buyers.

There are two teams within M.A.S.E., the Disruption Team and the Safety Team. The Disruption Team seeks to holistically address the demand for commercial sex in Fort Worth by disrupting it on several levels.

Safety Team provides a safe environment for our Survivor Support Group, ensuring these women can heal together without worry or fear.

Interested in joining M.A.S.E.? We’d love to have you! The process involves attending training, filling out the M.A.S.E. application, and completing the unique requirements of your specific M.A.S.E. team.
