About Interval House:
Founded in 1973, Interval House works in Toronto to support women and children before and after escaping abusive situations. It is estimated that 67% of Canadians know at least one woman who has been physically or sexually assaulted. Interval House aims to break the cycle of abuse, believing that everyone has the right to a safe, healthy, and violence-free life.
Interval House’s residential program can house up to 12 women and 18 children at a time. In F2017, 73 women and 83 children lived at Interval House with an average stay of two months. Families are provided supplies including food, toiletries, emergency medicine, and baby items. Counselling is available at any time. Women and children can participate in social activities while accessing workshops to develop practical skills. A male and female counsellor work together to lead children’s group activities so that that kids see respectful interactions between differently-gendered people. As survivors of domestic abuse are often reluctant to leave behind a family pet, Interval House offers the SafePet Program. Animals are cared for in a foster home until a family moves out of the shelter.
Interval House’s community programs work with families before, during, and after their stay in shelter. Workshops are offered to teach independence, self-confidence, and self-care. Women are also supported in finding sustainable housing and employment. Her Home Housing Project works with private landlords, allowing women to pay less than market rent for a year. Community programs were accessed by 102 people in F2017.
Results and Impact: Interval House reports that in F2017, 18 residents were helped to find employment and 6 of the women returned to school. There were 38 families supported in finding stable, affordable housing.
