Saving Lives, Giving a Voice, Changing the Future…

When we started Men Make a Difference Men Against Domestic Violence in 2009, one of the goals of the group was to raise awareness. I suppose we’ve been successful because the number of women and children served by Interval House has increased by 50% since that time. While it is indeed good news that people are more aware of and are seeking out Interval House’s services, it is truly unfortunate that there are so many people in need of those services. It is also unfortunate that this increase in demand for services has occurred during such a difficult funding environment for all non-profits. For these reasons, I’m proud to financially support the important work of Interval House.

As a health care provider I see the devastating impact intimate partner violence has on families. Interval House has a long history in the community providing safety, support, and other much needed advocacy services. Their dedicated staff give so much of themselves as they assist in the healing process, help break the cycle of violence while promoting healthy and safe interpersonal relationships.

Interval House was there for me when I was at the lowest point in my life providing education, legal advocacy, and a safe, therapeutic environment where I could share my experience with other women impacted by domestic violence.  I give to ensure that others will have this same lifeline. ~ Forever grateful.
