Roots of Safety is a service planning approach that DIVERSEcity Violence Prevention Services developed and adapted from its parent model Signs of Safety™. It uses a women-centered approach to provide culturally safe and respectful safety planning to support the unique needs of newcomer women and their families.
All of DIVERSEcity’s gender-based violence programs use the Roots of Safety approach in service planning. It’s a collaborative process between us and the client, empowering the client to act and make decisions independently.
The framework is grounded in intersectionality and anti-oppressive practice, with a continuous effort to support the long-term healing process of self-identified women.
We are pleased to have received new funding from Women and Gender Equality Canada to further strengthen our work with Roots of Safety with a new 34-month project that will train immigrant and refugee survivors of violence to become facilitators of the Roots of Safety framework for gender-based violence service providers and partners.
