The Special Collection during November (all collections from the November 5 service, and any others marked “Special Collection” during the month) will be directed to 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 more than 70 different languages for both youth and adult victims. Over the past 35 years, Interval House has served as a comprehensive safety net for individuals and families affected by domestic violence in Long Beach. Their programs help bridge a critical gap in our community, helping the most culturally underserved and impoverished victims of domestic violence achieve their dreams of safety, stability, and self-sufficiency.
