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.
