Springtide Resources, Toronto & GTA

Improving Pathways to Safety aims to develop inclusive practices for working with 2SLGBTQ+ survivors of intimate partner violence who need shelter services in the Greater Toronto Area. By partnering with four anti-violence shelters in the Greater Toronto Area (the Redwood, Ernestine’s Women’s Shelter, North York Women’s Shelter and Interim Place) they will create and offer a robust analysis of 2SLGBTQ+ accessibility and inclusion in their organizations. Springtide Resources will provide recommendations for changes to current practices, an implementation proposal and guide, three training sessions for frontline staff, management and boards, and an overview of the steps involved in ensuring services are truly inclusive of 2SLGBTQ+ survivors.

Grant amount: $23,000
