The signs that someone is being abused are often difficult to see as much of the abusive actions and behaviours are done out of the view of others.

Kingston Interval House

Working to end violence against women, children, and youth since 1975

Kingston Interval House (KIH) is a local agency in Kingston, Ontario that provides 24-hour safe emergency shelter, community-based counselling services and Second Stage Housing to women, youth and children who have experienced violence.

Since 1975, we have been responding to the needs of abused women and their children, and youth, in our community.

What we know is that violence against women is unrelenting, and with the demand for services growing, the increased complexity of need deepening and finite resources, traditional models of delivering services cannot meet the new reality of what is required.

Women, children, and youth who require our services need change. We are not going to wait for change to come, we will be that change.
