The need has grown. Last year, we provided often lifesaving services, to more than 5,600 clients from our office and shelter in Hartford and office in Manchester and, support services both east and west of the Connecticut River. More than 30,000 people heard about Interval House and learned about domestic violence through our outreach and education efforts.
Services are available to victims in 24 communities in the Greater Hartford area and are provided to those seeking help in the strictest confidence, and at no cost.
Saving Lives, Giving a Voice, Changing the Future
Women leave our programs and go on to provide safe homes for themselves and their children.
They leave Interval House knowing there is a place where they can go, free from abuse, with people who cared for them and their situation; a place where they are shown the way out of the violence, and provides them with skills to stand strong against it.
Leaving us, women have gone on to higher education, start careers and gone on to live productive, self-sufficient lives, in safety. Former clients often stay connected to Interval House through support groups, making personal referrals, volunteering and some have been hired as staff.
It is less likely children will continue the pattern of domestic violence as adults when they are aware of the warning signs and can differentiate between an abusive relationship and a healthy relationship. Through Interval House’s specialized services for children, programs for teens and unique programs for college students and athletes we work toward that.
Interval House is dedicated to providing services to prevent and break the cycle of family and intimate partner abuse. We strive to reach all persons at risk and bring about social change.
Interval House is a 501(c) 3 tax qualified organization as defined by the Internal Revenue Service.
Interval House is one of 18 member agency's in the Connecticut Coalition Against Domestic Violence (CCADV).
"We support Interval House so women and children will not have to experience stress, fear and violence. The transition support they offer is priceless - and they are truly changing the future."
