In 2017 Interval House of Hamilton Shelter was at over capacity with one month being at 130%. More than 90 woman and over 84 children stayed in the emergency shelter. In 2018 we are looking to our corporate partners through a program called ‘Room With A View’. This program supports the personal needs of the women and children in our community who are fleeing violence and abuse. The sponsorship of one bed at the Shelter is $3,000 for the year or $250 per month.
