Crime Prevention Ottawa has partnered with the Ottawa-Carleton Association for Persons with Developmental Disabilities to tackle the issue of home takeovers. If you would like to book a workshop for your staff, your clients or your community, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org The free workshops can be tailored to the specific needs of your agency or community.
We have also created a number of resources available to you:
· Eight home takeovers videos, available in English and French
Each video highlights a different kind of home takeover including those related to general isolation, developmental disabilities, addictions, youth, gangs and older adults. All the videos are available on YouTube
The home takeovers guidebook is available to service providers for strategies around how to manage these complex situations. It includes suggestions for prevention, identification, intervention and aftercare.
