Street Level Women at Risk: Year Two Evaluation Report

Released March 20, 2019

The Street Level Women at Risk Year Two Summary Evaluation Report presents the summary, aggregate results and findings from the first two years of the Street Level Women at Risk program.  Results include data from April 1, 2016 to March 31, 2018.

Street Level Women at Risk (SLWAR) uses a Housing Stability approach to assist women who are experiencing homelessness and involved in street level sex work to secure permanent housing with supports.

SLWAR is the collaborative effort of 25 diverse programs, including: addiction, mental health and physical health services; violence against women services; corrections and justice services; child welfare services; homeless serving organizations; and, social services.

Women who have lived through the experience of street level sex work continue to inform the model and practice through the Women’s Advisory Group.

London's Community Plan Regarding Street Level Women at Risk

Hard to Stop...Harder to Stay Stopped

London's Community Plan Regarding Street Level Women at Risk focuses on addressing the housing, exit strategies, health and well-being of women who are involved in street-involved sex work, and/or trading sex for food, drugs or a place to stay.

The Community Plan is grounded in the lived experience of street-involved women, and feedback from London service providers.

A "Housing First" approach is the underlying approach of the Plan. A "Housing First" approach shifts the priority to move individuals and families quickly into a home with the supports needed to support their stability.

The Street Level Women at Risk Program is a collaboration of 24 organizations working to provide housing and supports to street-level sex workers.

Collaboration Advisory Group

The Collaboration Advisory Group is the oversight body, guides and monitors progress, and acts as a resource in the development and implementation of the Model identified in the Community Plan Regarding Street Level Women at Risk.
