FRPO Cheque Presentation

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.

One of Interval House’s great strengths is the programs available to our residents as they begin to rebuild their lives. Yes, jobs and housing are important if a woman is to remain free of her abuser, but the damage that is done by violence and fear takes time and attention to heal.

Eating healthy to heal the body

Healthy living is an important part of healing. As part of our Health and Wellness program, a nutritionist, Andria, held a workshop for the families in our residence last night.

Families learned that eating healthy is part of the healing journey and is another important way that you can take care of yourself. Andria shared nutrition values, and information from the Canada Food Guide, along with tricks to get your kids to eat well.
