Foundational Statements

Vision

Kingston Interval House is part of a global movement that seeks to ensure the human rights
of all women. Through our mission, we work towards changing the structural and broader
social, political and economic circumstances that render women and their children vulnerable
to gender-based violence and other forms of oppression.

Mission

Kingston Interval House provides essential, responsive and empowering services to women,
children and youth who have experienced the impact of violence against women. We seek to
interrupt the cycle of domestic abuse and gender-based violence through the delivery of our
core services, which include:
• Emergency shelter services
• Transitional programs
• Community-based outreach and support services
• Second-stage housing
• Public education, awareness and prevention services
• Community engagement and capacity building

Values

The core principles that guide our work create standards of excellence in everything we do. As
a feminist organization committed to intersectional, anti-racist and anti-oppressive practice,
our organization demonstrates the values of:
• Accessibility
• Responsiveness
• Empowerment
• Constituent Involvement
• Accountability
• Ongoing Learning
• Multi-Issue Literacy
