Luke's Place Support and Resource Centre for Women and Children

Luke’s Place will undertake the preliminary research for a project to examine the family court processes in Ontario in search of ways to reduce risk and improve outcomes in family law cases involving violence against women and criminal and/or child protection legal issues. Its partners in the initiative include Dr. Mavis Morton (University of Guelph), the Ontario Association of Interval and Transition Houses, and the Woman Abuse Council of Toronto. This initiative has the potential to improve access to justice, and safety, for women with intersecting legal issues who have experienced domestic violence.
