On September 21st, 2015 Shelter Nova Scotia opened our sixth facility, known as Herring Cove Apartments – Housing First. It is an affordable, supportive living environment dedicated to individuals who have experienced chronic homelessness and who have a long history of  alcohol dependency.  Housing is provided in combination with 24 hour on site support staff, and is offered utilizing low barrier, harm reduction strategies.  Guided by Housing First principles, Herring Cove Apartments has the capacity to house twelve adults aged nineteen and older of any gender.
