Fall 2022 Newsletter

By | Newsletter

Check out our Fall Newsletter to see what has been happening at Interval House.

It crazy to  to think that before 1973, there was no such thing as a shelter for abused women in Canada. The fact that a shelter was even built was a controversy – the headlines of the day proved it. The prevalent thought in the 70’s was it’s not my business what goes on next door.

A brave group of women believed that women and children who were enduring abuse at the hands of their partners deserved better. And Interval House was born.

So much has changed over the past 50 years, I believe that together we have altered attitudes and invited more conversation about intimate partner violence.

As we get ready to celebrate our 50th anniversary on April 1, 2023, we are grateful for your steadfast support as you continue to stand beside us and the women we empower

Thank you to all our generous donors, supporters and community partners. You have helped us implement extraordinary measures to make sure Interval House is safe from COVID-19. And we proud to report that we’ve had zero cases.

This is only possible because our generous donors that gave us the ability to quickly adjust our procedures, move most of our in-person programming online, and more recently – as you’ll read about in our most recent newsletter create isolation suites in our shelter for residents who may need a safe place to quarantine.

Spring 2021 Newsletter

Violence against women is at crisis levels across the country. Even before the pandemic, a woman was killed by her intimate partner every six days. Now 1 in 10 women are very concerned about the possibility of violence in the home during COVID-19.

The Federal Government has released a Joint Declaration for a Canada free of Gender-Based Violence.  Although, this is a step in the right direction, we need action now.

The global pandemic has created more isolation, economic stress, and widened the already-dangerous gender inequalities in Canada. Isolation has further put thousands of women, girls, trans, non-binary and BIPOC people at an all-time high risk of violence at home.

Women are suffering at home at the hands of their abusers right now.

That’s why Interval House stands with women’s organizations and shelters across Canada to call for a national action plan – immediately.
