A Message on COVID-19
Interval House continues to offer essential services to intimate partner violence survivors and their children. Our crisis line remains open 24-7 and we are still accepting abuse survivors on the road to independence into our Building Economic Self-Sufficiency program. Now, more than ever, we must stand by survivors and ensure there is a safe place to go if they are experiencing abuse. If you need support, please call our crisis line 1-888-293-5516 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Call 911 if you are in immediate danger. If you can help us support survivors, please donate today.
By her side for 50 years
Interval House became a leader in the women’s movement when we opened as Canada’s first shelter for abused women in 1973. Discover our critical role in empowering women and bringing the issue of intimate partner violence to the forefront. Explore our 50th anniversary time capsule featuring archival news clips, photos, stories and interviews with Canadian icons such as Anna Maria Tremonti, Michele Landsberg, Linda Sims and Elizabeth Renzetti.
Interval House is the first centre for abused women and children in Canada. We are leaders in the campaign for women’s empowerment, providing innovative, specialized services that help women survivors of intimate partner violence and their children transform their lives and break the cycle of abuse.
As we look back on the events and challenges of the pandemic, we are amazed at all we have accomplished together. Despite daunting obstacles Interval House is always here for the women and children who come to us looking for safety, support, and hope. For 50 years, it has been our mission to create a world without intimate partner violence.
Our dedicated staff share how they have maintained a COVID-19 free space and supportive environment for our clients and residents. Thank you to all our donors, supporters and community partners for your generosity and support.
