Ongoing individual counselling; suicide prevention, intervention and postvention care; same-day crisis counselling; homelessness and housing supports; and drop-in space for LGBTQ2S youth up to age 29, providing meals, basic necessities, and TTC tokens.
All counselling and programming are grounded in client-centered, strengths-based, anti-oppressive framework. Case management support includes connection with emergency shelter and housing solutions; assistance with applying for government health and social assistance programs including OW, ODSP and OHIP; help with obtaining government-issued identification and/or amending sex markers on official documentation; coaching on resumes, job searches and employment agency referrals; and exploration of educational and learning opportunities, including high school, post-secondary and trades programs.
Once a month we receive a visit from a queer and trans-friendly Nurse Practitioner who provides healthcare and referrals and can connect participants with a GP if they don’t already have one.
Egale offers a variety of workshops to school boards, educators and students alike! We offer two fully funded streams for our sessions: Safer Schools and Draw the Line.
Safer school sessions range from understanding the LGBTQI2S acronym, gender fluidity, capacity building, consent, and more. Our Draw the Line workshops focus on transphobia, rape culture and intersectionality. Our facilitators integrate lecture style speeches, videos, activities, interactive games and discussion to ensure a well rounded and in depth understanding of the content. Egale hopes through our workshops to create a more inclusive, safer and educated community.
