A new, empowering tool to help identify a home takeover

Not sure if you’re experiencing a home takeover? This new easy-to-use self-assessment tool can help: Welcomed Guest or Home Takeover? Crime Prevention Ottawa has once again partnered with the Ottawa-Carleton Association for Persons with Developmental Disabilities to tackle the issue of home takeovers. Feel free to use this tool yourself, or give it to a friend or client.

If you would like to book a workshop for your staff, your clients or your community, please contact hometakeovers@gmail.com. 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:
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.

For copies of any of the home takeovers printed materials, or to book a presentation or workshop, email us at hometakeovers@gmail.com. You can also download a print-ready copy of the guidebook.
