Kingston Interval House is a 25 bed; safe, temporary shelter for women alone or with their children/youth. Female youth age 16 and above, can reside at the shelter independently. Priority is given to those who have experienced violence or are at risk of violence. Trained and committed staff members provide women and children/youth with supportive counselling, safety planning tools, advocacy and community referrals.
Our large home-like setting provides rooms for families and individuals. An extensive security system contributes to the safety for all of our residents and staff. We are committed to being as accessible as possible and can offer residents wheelchair lifts, ramps, and interpreters for various languages. Service animals are welcome and the Humane Society will offer accommodation for any other pets.
We are a smoke-free facility with a scent-free policy. A designated private and secure outdoor smoking area is provided for residents of the shelter. We have limited parking availability for our residents.
