Women-serving organizations continue to offer a wide range of support, guidance, and shelter to women and their children.


Following the public health direction to stay home is important. We know, however, that home is not always safe for everyone. Available help for women and their children takes many forms, from supportive connections and outreach over the phone, information about safety planning and resources, to provision of emergency shelter and second-stage housing.


If you are experiencing domestic abuse, you’re not alone. There’s help available to you, wherever you are in Nova Scotia.
