Donate to Harbour House Shelter

Save the date: next 'Families Supporting Families' (FSF) campaign will be held on Family Day in February.

Monetary Donations

Monies donated to Harbour House can be designated to a specific purpose - i.e. help with capital costs, support for programs and services, projects identified through the Families Supporting Families annual campaign, etc.  Unspecified donations will be allocated to our operational budget and will fund anything from staffing and groceries to paying for electricity, etc.  Charitable tax receipts are issued for donations over $25.00.

Gift Card Donations

Harbour House always appreciates gift card donations.  Many women who come engage with our services, have lived with no choices.  A gift card allows them to empower themselves by choosing exactly what they need to purchase.  Gift cards for groceries (Superstore, Sobeys etc.), are very important when setting up their new home.  As we all know, this can be very expensive.  We also love being able to provide gift cards for pharmacies, gas stations, clothing stores and even those for hair salons.


Used Items

Due to COVID-19, at this time we are not able to accept used items. We will update this page when we are able to resume accepting these items.


Free Store

In last year's fundraising campaign, Families Supporting Families, we raised money to set up a “free store” at Harbour House where women from our shelter can access items needed to set up their new homes. As many women leave situations in a hurry and without taking much with them, when they secure a new home for themselves and their children, they need everything.

Donations are welcome for our food bank, new household items (pots, pans, cooking items, utensils, cleaning supplies, etc.). Please call (902) 543-3999 to discuss if you are interested in donating these items.
