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.

We hold space for those who are grieving this weekend, rather than celebrating. May we all practice meaningful allyship with Indigenous communities, both on national holidays, and year-round. 🧡
