Adsum for Women & Children
Excerpted from the website:
- Adsum for Women & Children is a charitable, community based organization located in Halifax, Nova Scotia that supports women and children who are homeless or at risk of becoming so. Since our beginning in 1983, we have focused on meeting the needs of individual clients.
- Adsum first opened as an emergency shelter. In 1987, responding to the lack of affordable housing, Adsum Court (formerly Venite Court) was built with the assistance of several levels of government.
