Safe Hope Home provides survivors of human trafficking a safe and supportive home to reside in while working on their recovery. In this supportive context participants develop basic living skills. This unique house encourages independent living in a roommate environment. Each participant has their own bedroom and can come and go from the house freely, while respecting house rules and curfews. The House Manager resides in the home with the young women. The home is also staffed with support workers that are available during waking hours to support the girls in any way needed. The home is intended to be a place of healing for those committed to recovery. The residential home is a place where the girls are supported and encouraged to learn basic life skills in conjunction with our Safe Hope day program while being in a safe environment.
OUTREACH & FOLLOW-CARE:
Safe Hope Home is committed to ending the cycle of sexual exploitation and human trafficking in the lives of the participants we support; however, it is recognized that not everyone who is in need of services will require a residential setting for service acquisition. Safe Hope Home is committed to supporting all survivors whether they choose to continue to their journey of recovery in the community, have left or have graduated Safe Hope Home’s long-term residential program.
WHAT IS OUTREACH? Safe Hope Home offers outreach services to survivors of Human Trafficking or those vulnerable to being trafficked, who, for whatever reason have either chosen to not enter the residential program, have been deemed an unideal fit for the home at this time, or have adequate outside support.
WHAT IS FOLLOW-CARE? Safe Hope Home offers follow-care services to young women who have previously resided in the residential home after they have graduated from the program. Participants in follow-care are monitored as needed and receive assistance in transitioning from a residential setting to independence. Participants in follow-care are able to remain involved and access services from the medical doctor, dentist and trauma therapist they saw while at Safe Hope Home. All the services that are available to Outreach participants are available to Follow-care participants upon exiting the Residential home. Participants will be monitored by staff on a scale deemed appropriate per individual need.
All those who are vulnerable to or have been trafficked are welcome in our outreach program. Please email: firstname.lastname@example.orgOther Outreach services include monthly group gatherings where you will find yourself a part of a safe, welcoming community of like-minded individuals. This is a space where we share, uplift one another, and discuss meaningful topics. Every other month we have a fun group activity to build community and belonging and just lighten the load of everyday life. You will also have access to a medical doctor familiar with treating survivors of human trafficking, working with a trauma therapist, as well as employment readiness programs and education planning. Participants involved in Safe Hope Homes Outreach Program are also eligible to receive assistance with groceries and other necessities, help with Ontario Works (OW), the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) and acquiring housing should they need it. Safe Hope Home also offers peer mentorship, court support and connecting individuals with other community resources dependent upon their needs (i.e. mental health and addiction services), as well as more practical assistance with life skills such as parenting, budgeting and transportation.
