Shelter Nova Scotia Logo

Shelter Nova Scotia is passionate about ending homelessness one person at a time. We help people transition from crisis to community. To this end, we operate 5 facilities in HRM providing over 44,000 bed nights per year to men and women with young children who otherwise have nowhere to turn. Each year we care for 1500 people. 17% of our clients are between the ages of 16-24.

We offer far more than shelter; utilizing client and housing support workers in tandem with mental health and addiction services we help people find sustainable independent living.

Shelter Nova Scotia’s Volunteer Opportunities

To laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children, to earn the approbation of honest critics; to appreciate beauty; to give of one’s self, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived–that is to have succeeded.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
