agingwithoutviolence finalreport eanconsultation cover"The Ontario Association of Interval and Transition Houses (OAITH) is a 77 member-based coalition of first stage women shelters, second stage housing programs, and community-based women’s organizations; Together, we work towards eliminating violence against all women in Ontario. Our initiatives include training and resource development, advocacy, public awareness, and government relations to improve social policies that impact women and their children.

In January 2018, OAITH received funding from the Ministry of Community and Social Services to lead a 4-year province-wide training and resource project focused on ending violence against older women (VAOW) by increasing the capacity of all professionals in Ontario providing support, services, or care to older women experiencing violence.

Please visit Aging Without Violence to see a full list of project advisory members and to access resources, tools, and training opportunities focused on older women experiencing violence. In 2018, the Aging Without Violence (AWV) provincial project advisory identified Elder Abuse Networks (EANs) across Ontario as ideal focus group participants to help inform and guide the AWV project."
