All our programs operate from a trauma informed framework that caters to the diverse needs of marginalized communities embracing the principals of empower, integrity and self advocacy. We strive to challenge heteronormative, CIS normative, patriarchal, classist, racist and xenophobic ideologies that permeates our society and within our own organization in the hope of facilitating a safe space for all.

Connections In

Corrections Program

Our Connections in Corrections Program focuses on folk who are leaving correctional facilities. We offer intensive case management, release planning and housing support for provincial and federal correction inmates. We also offer peer groups (Our On Road series) that focus on reintegration - such as how to obtain ID, where to access services, how to open a bank account, finding healthy hobbies, resume writing, and self esteem building.

Walking With


Our Walking With Women Program provides women who are using substances, experiencing homelessness and those struggling with situations of abuse with peer support groups that are harm reduction focused. This program gives women a place to share, a place to get connected to supports, a place to form a community.
