Make  A Difference with Kingston Interval House

Through the commitment, passion and work of our volunteers we are able to provide a wide range of services and programs. Volunteers are critical to the work we do and act as advocates for all women who experience violence. We offer our volunteers various opportunities within our organization.

Due to the vulnerable nature of our residents and the demands of an emergency shelter living environment and second stage housing, we require our volunteers to be 18 years of age, female, and have a recent (within 3 months) CPIC available. If you would like to explore with us our volunteer opportunities please fill out our form below and we will contact you for a personal interview
