Shelter, Food, Support, Compassion 

Looking For Help?

Viola's Place offers emergency shelter services with limited bedding capacity. Our doors open for intake at 7PM nightly. 

The Path to a Better Tomorrow

At Viola's Place Society, a hot meal and a warm bed is where the journey begins. Our Housing Coordinator works to help clients find stable housing, and connect to services within the community which support them towards their goals.

As our clients transition into long term housing, staff help to equip their new home with the basics for furniture, bedding and food preparation. Shelter clients and the broader northeastern region of Nova Scotia may partner with a Community Trustee through Viola's Place to assist in financial management.
