When victims of human trafficking are connected with the Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Treatment Centre and Waterloo Regional Police Service, they need a place to stay. Right now, they often end up staying short-term in hospitals or hotels. We can do better than that.
The multidisciplinary response involves medical (forensic nurses) and social services (social workers) ensuring victims receive the complete continuum of care, support, and referrals while working in conjunction with Victim Services, Woman’s Crisis Services, Withdrawal Management and Al-Control.
What can I do?
