All Saints Church-Community Centre – Women’s Drop-In

Group Name: All Saints Church-Community Centre – Women’s Drop-In

Description: All Saints Church-Community Centre is committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment while enhancing the well-being of homeless and street-involved individuals from a harm reduction and human-rights based approach. All Saints provides friendship, social opportunities, group and individual creative expression opportunities, case management, counselling, advocacy, and sanctuary. These services are provided with respect, compassion, and without prejudice to all who seek them. We place people, their goals and needs, at the center of everything we do, and strive to create a place that is welcoming, supportive, and accessible.

All Saints Women’s Drop-In uses a harm reduction and human-rights based approach to work with women (trans-inclusive) who are engaging in sex work in the community. Grounded in the principles of social justice, we work to protect the rights, health and safety of sex workers who by choice, circumstance, or coercion remain in the industry. Our programs strive to address the impact that discrimination, poverty, violence and drug use have on the lives of individuals engaging in sex work. All Saints Women’s Drop-In embraces a non-judgmental, all-inclusive approach while providing a full spectrum of programs to address basic and immediate needs, long-term goal setting and life skills development. ***Women’s group available for women who are not in sex work.
