Summer’s over…the cooler temperatures of fall and the new school year is upon us. Many women, who have lived in fear of abuse through the summer months, will be arriving at Interval House this month. Through the rest of this year they will come, looking for hope and the tools to start a new life.
Where can you eat great food, make new friends and reconnect with old ones, kick a soccer ball, toss a Frisbee, swing a badminton racket, compete at hula hoops AND win an Olympic medal?
At Interval House’s Summer Picnic, that’s where!

“This time last year, I felt like I was locked away in a basement with no hope.”
These words, spoken by the 2012 BESS Valedictorian, have a powerful way of echoing through the hearts of every participant of BESS (Building Economic Self-Sufficiency). In her valedictory speech on June 15, Sheila George* was telling her own story, but it’s also a story that resonated with the hundreds of women whose lives have been changed by involvement with Interval House’s flagship program.

On September 28 – 29, the Toronto City Church is holding its Women’s Conference. This two day event, themed “Pure Unhindered” is a chance for the women of the church to get together for a weekend of biblical study and celebration.
To celebrate women’s accomplishments, they’ll be collecting new socks and underwear for the residents of Interval House – items we always need at the shelter!

For the 6th year in a row, the Federation of Rental-Housing Providers of Ontario held its Spring Golf Classic, raising funds for the women and children at Interval House.
It was a gorgeous day to be out on the green. The sun was shining and the beautiful golf course at Angus Glen put FRPO’s golfers in the mood to buy raffle tickets and bid on amazing silent auction items.
At the end of the day, FRPO raised over $45,000 – including a very generous donation of $25,000 on top of their incredible fundraising efforts!
Interval House has a deep connection with the rental-housing industry. They helped us build our shelter, hire our BESS graduates, and help us find affordable housing solutions for the women we serve.
At this year’s FRPO Golf Classic, we took the opportunity to say “thank you” to a few of our most special partners: Minto Management Inc., CAPREIT and GWL Realty Advisors.
