Gifts of Hope

Hope is essential for all of us – and as Canada’s very first shelter for abused women and children, we know hope is especially vital for women escaping intimate partner violence.

Women fleeing abuse need to have hope that things can and will get better, and a helping hand to navigate times of crisis. Will you help a survivor of intimate partner violence and her children by giving a Gift of Hope today?

As we celebrate 50 years of empowering women, we hope you will consider making a special gift. With your symbolic Gift of Hope today, you can provide women and children at Interval House with the safety and support they need to rebuild their lives and end the cycle of abuse.
