Elizabeth Fry Toronto, established in 1952, serves women in the criminal justice system. We provide transitional housing and community support for women who are, have been or are at risk of being in the criminal justice system.
We are the only social service agency in Toronto with a specific mandate to provide programs and services for and about women in conflict with the law. We offer individual and group counselling, crisis intervention, release planning, referrals, transitional housing, and community education.
