She finds courage enough to run – to leave her abusive environment – because now she must protect her child as well as herself.
Where does she run to escape this domestic violence?
Interval House has become the answer to thousands of victims and, because of the tremendous success experience there, it will be one of the beneficiaries of AACSC’s first golf tournament.
For 25 years, Interval House has been a place for healing and growth… a refuge rich with support and guidance... a bridge to a new life for thousands of women and children who are the victims of domestic violence.
These efforts have been distinguished with hundreds of awards, including three Presidential Awards conferred by Presidents Bush and Clinton declaring Interval House and their pioneering, multicultural programs as “models for our nation.”
Interval House’s mission 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 the recurring phenomenon.

Interval House currently operates five residential facilities and outreach centers. The typical length of stay at their emergency shelters is 30-45 days. The length of stay at their transitional homes ranges from 60 days to 24 months, enabling families to become self-sufficient, contributing members of our community. Their outreach centers provide comprehensive domestic violence services to victims who are not in residence at their shelters, including counseling, legal, medical, educational and prevention programs.
If you would like to help support Interval House and all of their efforts, please sign up for AACSC’s first annual golf tournament.
