Our second option for our quilts - Interval House

The mission of Interval House is to ensure safety for people who are battered, abused, or at risk; to create public awareness about the epidemic of violence; and to mobilize the community to prevent violence and end this recurring phenomenon.

Interval House was founded in 1979 as a lifeline to underserved victims in crisis. Today, Interval House has strengthened its mission and purpose by offering specialized programs and services in over 70 different languages for both youth and adult victims.

Since 1979, Interval House has worked passionately to develop innovative programs that have been recognized with over 400 awards, including three Presidential Awards and two Governor's Awards, citing Interval House as a "model" domestic violence program to the nation.
