WORKING TOGETHER FOR SAFER COMMUNITIES
The Ontario Halfway House Association (OHHA) is an alliance of non-profit organizations comprised of residential service providers for men and women in conflict with the law as well as various governmental agencies and stakeholders who work together to provide safe and effective rehabilitation programs for federal offenders returning to the community.
Ontario’s halfway houses create an important bridge between institution and the community by offering gradual, appropriately supervised reintegration combined with the necessary treatment plans.
SKILLS AND REHABILITATION
Ontario’s residential facilities equip men and women with the diverse skills and knowledge they need to assist in becoming law-abiding members of the community. Our facilities also target and design effective programs and interventions that consider the unique challenges faced by minority groups and women. Please see our FAQ for more information on the ways in which our facilities contribute to the safety of our communities.
Partners in the Community
Established in 1979, OHHA continues to enhance public safety by strengthening its community partnerships as well as by focusing on improved integration with criminal justice services throughout Canada.
EVIDENCE-BASED PROGRAMS AND TREATMENT PLANS
The OHHA membership works to establish evidence-based program and treatment plans as well as to review, create and maintain effective standards, policies and legislation for residential services in Ontario.
