INTERVAL HOUSE AWARDED 2018
LINCOLN FINANCIAL FOUNDATION GRANT
HARTFORD – Interval House, the state’s largest domestic violence intervention and prevention organization, received a $20,000 grant this week from the Lincoln Financial Foundation.
Each year, Interval House provides services to thousands of women and children, and men, that find themselves trapped in abusive marriages and relationships. The grant will allow Interval house to shelter survivors at its emergency safe house, as well as continue to fund life-saving services in the 24 cities and towns it covers, said Mary-Jane Foster, Interval House’s President and CEO.
“For us this grant is not just a check, but a heartfelt commitment from Lincoln Financial Group to help us continue to save lives,” Foster said. “It will buy food, clothing, boost support in the courts and fund our safe house needs so survivors can be free from violence and abuse.”
The Lincoln Financial Foundation, established in 1962, is a nonprofit organization formed and supported by Lincoln Financial Group. Under the Foundation guidelines, grants are made in the areas of arts, education, human services and economic/workforce development.
Interval House was founded in 1977. The nonprofit organization provides services to victims of abuse and their children, such as a 24-hotline, court advocacy, safety planning, support groups, crisis counseling, as well as a children’s program and community education.
