Unsafe at Home Prescott-Russell is managed by Maison Interlude House (MIH). Established in 1983, MIH has always supported women victims of domestic violence and their children who are at the core of its development efforts. As a result, nearly 30 years later, MIH has become a multi-service organization to better meet the various needs of women who use our services. MIH can rely upon its team of qualified residential counsellors and outreach workers who are devoted to the elimination of violence against women. All of our services are and confidential, and offered in French and English.
Unsafe at Home Prescott-Russell is based on a similar service offered in Ottawa. In 2020, The Ottawa Coalition to End Violence Against Women, Crime Prevention Ottawa, Interval House of Ottawa and the Eastern Ottawa Resource Centre launched Unsafe at Home Ottawa to offer women living with abuse or violence during the COVID-19 pandemic a safe space to reach out for help.
We would like to thank these valuable partners who did not hesitate to share their knowledge and material to make Unsafe at Home Prescott-Russell go online as quickly as possible.
We would also like to thank United Way East Ontario – Prescott-Russell for their financial support. They understood immediately the importance of this new project in this time of pandemic.
Finally, many thanks to Valor & Solutions who contributed to the implementation of this project.
