COURAGE FOR CHANGE
This program supports the unique needs of Indigenous women, youth, and girls that are affected by sexual exploitation. All services provide a trauma- informed, anti-oppressive framework with culture- based practices and models to ensure a seamless integration of cultural and mainstream supports.
Program services are grounded in a harm-reduction approach that acknowledges that all women walk their own paths. As a 24/7 crisis response team, they work collaboratively with Indigenous women to address their own needs. Individual safety plans highlight dynamic mobile strategies and continuous supports to Indigenous women, youth, and girls ensuring their own healing journey and successes.
The uniqueness of this program includes a collaborative partnership with the Indigenous Anti- Human Trafficking Liaisons, providing services within other communities in Ontario.
