What to Expect From the Intake Process

The purpose of the intake process is for AOH to get to know you, and an idea of what services you may need. It is also an opportunity for you to get to know us, and the services and support we can offer you. The intake process can be done by phone, virtually over Zoom, or in-person with an AOH staff member – the staff member will ask you questions, and give you a chance to share your story.

From your responses, we will start a circle of care that could include addictions or mental health counselling, virtual support groups, case management, court support, and/or referrals to specialized community agencies such as housing, employment and training, Methadone clinics, etc.

Indigenous Culture & Counselling

Indigenous peoples of Canada require the most effective type of counselling that honors their own culture. The historical past of trauma requires that the root cause be addressed, and needs to be honored to allow our people to sustain a life of balance. The holistic approach is the most effective, as it represents mental, emotional, and physical well-being. Once the four elements are acknowledged, the healing will begin for a more peaceful, sustainable life.


AOH services are available to all survivors of human trafficking and sexual exploitation from various ages and backgrounds, including Black, Indigenous, people of colour, and 2SLGBTQI+ communities. Acute and historic cases are tailored to survivors’ specific needs. To receive any of the services below, survivors can be referred by their current service provider, or can self-refer by contacting AOH directly by email, or by phone. *There is currently no wait time to access services.
