hope, love, and empowerment through advocacy and personal support
Our Mission: Love Made Claim, Inc. is a resource for people who are involved in, or who have transitioned out of, the sex industry, providing hope, love and empowerment through advocacy and personal support.
Love Made Claim, Inc. is passionate about reaching out to and walking alongside people who are or have been involved in the sex industry and being a source of support in tangible ways. This includes providing a variety of resources, such as grocery and gas gift cards, utility bill assistance, transportation tickets, clothing gift cards, bus passes, and other assistance. We also connect people to other community resources and partner with local organizations to offer as much support as possible. Additionally, we are passionate about seeing stigmas and labels that are often placed on people abolished.
We first began reaching out to women in the sex industry in the fall of 2011, became an official non-profit organization in 2013 and received our 501(c)3 status in February of 2014. Founded by Colorado native Natasha Hurt, LMC currently has an office in Denver and is active in Colorado and Wyoming.
WHAT WE DO
We reach out to people in the sex industry, we provide tangible needs and offer support to people in or those who have transitioned out of the industry, and, through community engagement, are advocating for stigmas and labels often placed on people to be abolished.
1. LMC, Inc.is committed to building trust and relationships with people in the sex-for-sale industry. Every month we deliver gift bags, food and cards/materials designed to open avenues of communication and exemplify just how loved and valuable each and every person is. We currently have teams serving in the Denver area as well as Northern Colorado and Cheyenne, Wyoming.
2. S.A.F.E. Support, Advocate, Friendship, Empowerment – We are advocates for and of people. We believe every person, and every story, matters and we are here as a source of support, whether someone wants to transition out of the sex industry or they are just needing some assistance with basic necessities. We strive to offer as much support as possible. This can include anything from LMC staff and volunteers transporting individuals to various appointments (doctor’s office, dentist office, housing/cash assistance programs, food pantries etc.), assisting in practical needs, such as grocery and gas cards, bus passes, clothing banks, etc. and utilizing other community resources available based on what each individual wants/needs.
3. Stigma Abolition No one ever deserves to be stigmatized or labeled. As an organization, we are passionate about addressing stigmas that are often placed on people in the sex industry and eliminating them through conversations, awareness and acknowledgment of the stigmas that exist not only in society, but also within individual perceptions.
