Third Place Transition House

Third Place Transition House is a 10 bed shelter that offers support services for women and children fleeing abuse and violence. We provide non-judgemental, inclusive, confidential services; offering a safe space for healing to begin. Third Place also offers Outreach Services, Public Education and Programming in Truro, Colchester and East Hants. Third Place is committed to the trauma-informed principles of awareness, safety, trustworthiness, choice, collaboration and empowerment in the work that we do.

Violence against women is a complex, societal issue, and abuse can take many forms; such as, physical, emotional, verbal, psychological, sexual and financial. We believe in the strength and resilience of women who face domestic, family or intimate partner violence.

Silent Witness Nova Scotia gives a voice to women who have had their voices silenced by domestic homicide. SWNS honours thesewomen in several ways, including the Barb's Bench Project. Purple benches are placed in public parks with a telephone number for women to call if they are victims of domestic violence. The SWNS Walk to Remember is happening virtually throughout October.

This #InternationalDayOfTheGirl we’re celebrating young women like Rae Steeves, Anne-Sophie Bartenstein and Kate James who recently won a grant from Rising Youth Canada to write a book about intersectional feminism called The Woman’s Issue.

Today we are proud to launch, "Somebody Must Say These Things", an eight-part podcast series that casts a stark, unapologetic light on our society’s continued insufficient acknowledgement of violence against women. You can listen by searching the title on any podcast app.
