All of our programs and services are free, except for Partner Assault Response (PAR) program which is a fee-for-service program based on a sliding scale rate.

In 2010, Elizabeth Fry Toronto adopted an organizational model to capture the complexity of the issues women face and the complexity of interventions required to help women move forward. The Sustainable Livelihoods Model is based on the work of Canadian Women’s Foundation and Eko Nomos.

It is hard to imagine that just a year ago, Susan was struggling with low self-esteem and was extremely shy. After a long history of incarceration, Susan was determined to change her life for the better. Susan joined the Peer Leadership program and developed public speaking skills, connected with positive role models and built her confidence. Susan is now a community educator, has re-connected with her family and is mentoring new members of the Peer Leadership program.
