We want you to know that we are diligently working to adjust our health and safety protocols in our emergency shelters, housing facilities, community residential facilities and in our offices, while still ensuring that people receive the services that they need. We are thankful to our team and all of those who are working each day to support those we serve.

During these uncertain times, we at Shelter Nova Scotia want to let you know that our emergency shelters, housing facilities and all other services remain open for those we serve.

Keeping the health and safety of our donors, guests, residents, clients, tenants, and employees as the priority and in line with changing health updates, we have pivoted away from the collection of donated items at our facilities. This was not an easy decision. The loss of these valuable gifts impacts those we serve and our spending, but we know it is the right thing to do for the health of the community. So how can you help when you cannot donate items?   

Here is how: By making a financial donation to our Care & Comfort Fund. Consider donating the money you would have spent on a meal or coffee and we will use it to purchase much needed personal care items for our guests.  

Stay safe and know we are grateful for your support. 

– The Shelter Nova Scotia Team
