Support Interval House of Ottawa
The Begining of Interval House of Ottawa:
In the early 1970s, a group of dedicated women were determined to open a house for women fleeing abuse, so they could have a place to be safe and build a life free from violence. After years of tireless work, in July of 1976, Interval House of Ottawa (IHO) opened its doors in a small home with four beds. It was Ottawa’s first shelter for women fleeing abuse.
Since that time, IHO has grown to accommodate 10 women and their dependents inaccessible, comfortable, private family bedrooms. In our first 40 years, we served more than 3200 women and 4000 dependents in our home, and countless more through our crisis line and Transitional & Housing Support Program.
Together, we have faced many challenges since 1976. These challenges have inspired us to change and grow in order to provide the best possible service to women fleeing violence. We pride ourselves on the effective partnerships we have established in this time, including, but limited to, the provincial Ministry of Community and Social Services, the City of Ottawa, Children’s Aid Society, Andrew Fleck Child Care and the Ottawa Police Service.
