Kingston Interval House is an Emergency Shelter and Second Stage Housing facility for women, children and youth experiencing violence. Our Emergency Shelter has 25 beds and is open 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. The shelter offers meals, accommodation, counselling, clothing, toiletries and safety.Our Second Stage Housing facility – Robin’s Hope – provides affordable housing in 18, one and two bedroom apartments for up to one year for the women and children/youth who are involved with Kingston Interval House.
We have French Language, Aboriginal, Children/Youth’s and Women’s Counselors offering support and referrals through our Outreach Program to the women and children who have experienced violence and are in the community.
Kingston Interval House receives funding from many sources. Donations from our community are the mainstay to many of our programs and basic shelter needs. The funding we receive from The Ministry of Community and Social Services provides for about 80% of our overall budget. We look to the community and granting agencies to help bridge the gap between Ministry funding and the needs of the women and children of our shelter, Second Stage housing facility and in the community.
