SafeHope Home is a faith based non-profit organization that provides a safe place for young women, who have been victims of human trafficking, rebuild their lives. We deliver a unique and comprehensive long-term recovery program of 3 – 7 years. The program provides housing, assistance obtaining a post-secondary education, counselling, recovery, life skills, job preparedness classes, job shadowing and on-the-job training. Through partnerships with Durham Regional Police Services, Provincial Government, and our surrounding community, SafeHope Home assists these young women, wanting to escape entrapment.

Why is SafeHope Home Needed?

Human trafficking into the sex trade in Canada refers to the coercion of others for material gain; in other words, young women forced into the sex trade against their will. The coercion is often based on false relationship manipulation, money, drugs, and physical abuse. What awaits them is a life of despair, violence, fear, and degradation. Incidents of human trafficking have been increasing in Durham Region and all of Ontario. The Durham Regional Police Service (as well as other policing services in Ontario) have formed special human trafficking units to combat these crimes. Prior to the SafeHope Home initiative, a complete resource like ours did not exist to support their efforts.
