Looking for a large home that would be used for supportive living program for women escaping from human trafficking.

I am not sure of the tax exempt but I am Aboriginal the women escaping from human trafficking rings would be residing there working on healing, safety planning, mostly we would be taking the "Victim" mentality and encouraging them to be born again... With a safe place to reside a team of professionals - we would make them over and legally change their name etc. REBORN!

COULD YOU POSSIBLY ASSISTANT IN ANY INFORMATION ON MY TOPIC IM OPEN FOR IDEAS ETC.

Thank you for your response!♥️

Since moving here they are speaking to me badly they keep ignoring the facts like things not working in my home, they charged me 2600.00 for a small front window that I found broken into when my place was robbed. The worker advised me to go to the police so I did and they took 8 weeks to put the window back into my door even to the point that the police drove by and did a wellness check and wondered why for so long I was sitting on the ground floor with no window. They threatened to evict me if I didn't pay for the window so I just agreed that was too scared to be thrown on the street.

They are constantly trying to control me they have a dog program at the building but they don't have a human program at my building so all the dog owners get free food and they definitely discriminate against certain types of people so some tenants get treated really well where other tenants are constantly being bullied into paying for things like garbage removal and stuff that is just not fair I feel like they discriminate me against me because I don't have any support.

Hi there,

Thank you for sharing your question and situation with us. We appreciate you reaching out.

You may be interested in connecting with housing assistance services near you. Community agencies that provide housing assistance services will be able to support you in finding suitable accommodation for the short-term and long-term.

You may also find helpful information in the Settlement.Org articles, How can I look for rental housing? and How can I apply for subsidized housing?.

If you are looking for help or would like information about services near you, you may want to dial 211 on a phone and speak to an Information and Referral Specialist to see if they can provide some information regarding services and options in your area. For 211 service in languages other than French and English, please call the 211 telephone service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Online chat is available in English and French at https://211ontario.ca/chat/ from Monday to Friday from 7am to 9pm.

You may also want to contact the Landlord and Tenant Board for general information about landlord and tenant issues at 1(888)332-3234. You may also want to contact the nearest Community Legal Clinic for some advice regarding your situation. You can find the nearest one by using this tool here. Steps to Justice also has a compiled list of programs and services in housing law that may be helpful.

Settlement.Org also has a Financial Assistance section, where you can find information on various government programs and financial supports you may be eligible for.

Survivors of human trafficking are eligible for free legal support. Public Safety Canada has a list of organizations that offer support for victims and survivors of human trafficking that may also be helpful. Here is an excerpt from Ontario's page on services/supports for survivors:

Community-based services and Indigenous-led supports:
Being trafficked can cause severe trauma and survivors often need intensive, specialized services and supports to help them heal and rebuild their lives.
Survivors in Ontario can access services from a range of community-based and Indigenous-led organizations across the province, many of which also work to prevent at-risk people from being trafficked.
Indigenous survivors can access supports designed by and for Indigenous people, including counselling, cultural programming, addictions treatment and leadership development services.

It can be very difficult for a survivor to leave a trafficking situation and can take several attempts before they find help.

Find organizations that provide a range of wrap-around services to help survivors rebuild their lives and regain independence, including crisis intervention, trauma therapy, counselling and skills training. Services also include dedicated supports for children and youth and survivor-led programming.
These service providers are funded through Ontario’s Community Supports Fund and Indigenous-led Initiatives Fund as part of the province’s Anti-Human Trafficking Strategy. In addition to these organizations, other service providers also offer programs and supports for survivors of human trafficking in Ontario.





We hope this information is helpful, please follow up with us if you have any additional questions, please feel free to post them here.

Sincerely,

Settlement.Org Team
