The idea of a “home for women in crisis” in Lloydminster was spawned between Dolores Cummine and Marge Nattress and other concerned community members in 1979. In the spring of 1980, the Minister of Saskatchewan Social Services and his aides travelled to Lloydminster to meet with the board. With great disappointment, it was learned that showing a need in the community was not enough to receive government funding . . .
How We Are Funded
The Lloydminster Interval Home Society is a registered non-profit organization in the Provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan. The Government of Alberta, Children & Youth Services provides about 60% of our operating budget and the remaining 40% is raised by our own fundraising efforts and individual donations. Without the support of our province, city and region we would not be able to provide the varied and high quality services we provide to women and children fleeing domestic violence and other life crisis.

The Lloydminster Interval Home Society (LIHS) takes its Purpose, Vision and Philosophy very seriously and has very high standards and expectations.
To provide safety, support and education to families and communities regarding the issue of family violence.
To passionately work towards eradicating family violence.
We believe in empowering individuals and families towards an abuse free lifestyle by living our values and beliefs, which include:
- Integrity, honesty, equality and respect.
- Knowing our alternatives.
- Our belief that each individual can reach their full potential.
- Our understanding that all individuals have the capacity to grow and change.
- Our hope for an abuse free society.
Ask yourself the following questions:
- Am I non-judgmental, empathic, warm and caring?
- Do I want to make a difference in my community?
- Does my business want to offer support through a work bee?
If you answered YES to these questions, maybe you should volunteer for the Lloydminster Interval Home!
One way to support and get to know your community is through volunteering. Each year, the Lloydminster Interval Home’s dedicated volunteers contribute thousands of hours to support families caught in the web of family violence.Volunteers enrich our programs and enhance the lives of others through their commitment, support, knowledge and enthusiasm. By working together we get to know one another, increase our knowledge about family violence, strengthen our collective and individual skills, and in the end, we build a deeper sense of community.
We have volunteer opportunities in various areas and are always looking for people who would love to donate their time to help fight the effects of domestic violence. While the bulk of our volunteer force works out of our ‘For the Interval’ Store, we look for volunteers in other areas as well.
The Volunteer Application can be completed and brought into the store during business hours, emailed to our Volunteer Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or faxed to 780-872-5551.
