About: In November 2021, Shelter Nova Scotia expanded our housing support services by opening The Hub. Through this program, Shelter Nova Scotia aims to provide a safer space for individuals to access basic needs, create crucial opportunities for social inclusion, and to provide support with diversion and eviction prevention. The Hub supports people who are experiencing homelessness through a connection to Coordinated Access System (CAS), support with housing applications, and provides food, clothing, shower and laundry access (laundry and shower are intended for those who sleep outside). It also serves as a space to build connection and belonging among those who are housed but experiencing isolation and loneliness. The Hub also administers a modest fund to disperse to people in need of non-recurring prevention and diversion funds (funded via Department of Community Services).

Remote Support: Remote support can be accessed Monday to Friday from 9am – 5pm via phone 902-406-3631.

If you are about to be evicted and need financial help, call:

 902-406-3631 ext. 845 or email diversion@shelternovascotia.com

If you are sleeping outside and need support, call:

 902-406-3631 ext. 851 or email outreach@shelternovascotia.com

The Hub - est. 2021

 

Drop-in Services(FREE): Tuesdays + Fridays, 10am – 1pm

Open to all community, people of all genders, aged 19 years and older.

 

The drop-in at The Hub operates twice per week and regularly has a line up before it opens. On some occasions as many as 66 people access the space in a span of three hours. Since opening, food support, eviction prevention and landlord advocacy are some of the biggest needs the housing team has navigated. The lack of affordable housing in our community has created additional strain when supporting people who are experiencing homelessness or insecurely housed.
