Third Place Transition House – Victims of Family Violence Association – Truro, Nova Scotia

Our Name

The name for our transition house comes from a Readers Digest article of many years age, which describes women as coming from their parents home, their first home, Then they marry, or move into their new home with their partners, and this becomes their second home. When that home becomes too unsafe to be in, there is a “Third Place” to go where there is safety, security, and nurturing.
