The Reintegration Service Trailer

Note: Temporarily closed due to Covid-19 safety requirements. In the meantime, please stop by our 3313 Lakeshore Blvd. W office, where we are still able to serve clients upon release.

Located right outside of the Discharge doors in the parking lot of the Toronto South Detention Centre, the Reintegration Services Trailer provides support for those being released from the jail or returning to pick up their property. Our staff and peer support workers are available to provide connections and warm referrals to vital services and programs, within the John Howard Society of Toronto and across the city. We provide clothing, food/snacks, TTC tokens, a place to check emails or charge cell phones, and the opportunity for clients to be accompanied by a peer support worker in the community. We also offer overdose prevention information, harm reduction education/tools, and naloxone.

Hours of Operation: Reopening date TDB.

Lakeshore Office

Our Lakeshore office serves the needs of vulnerable community members in the local area. Walk-ins are welcome during regular business hours. We provide assessments, referrals, snacks, overdose prevention information, harm reduction education/tools, and naloxone. Our office also houses our Home for Good, Innovative Housing with Support Program. By engaging landlords in the private market, men leaving provincial jails and who have experienced chronic homelessness and face complex mental health and substance use issues are able to access housing. Working with our case managers and peer support workers, each client will receive individualized support to acquire the necessary skills and assistance to maintain their housing.
