The Alders by Adsum

Every person has the right to a safe, secure home. In addition to providing safe shelter, a new home can also reinforce a woman's sense of self-worth and provide increased dignity. 

Adsum Centre

Adsum Centre, located in Lakeside, is a communal, residential living environment that provides support and programming to 16 women and their children. The focus is on addressing barriers that have resulted in homelessness.

Applicants must make a minimum six-month commitment and are permitted to stay up to 12 months to pursue personal goals toward positive, independent living.

Adsum Court

Located in Dartmouth, Adsum Court is a long-term supportive housing option that consists of 23 independent living units or apartments.  Women living at Adsum Court contribute to their rent, which covers the cost of building maintenance and mortgage payments.

Adsum House

Women, youth and families seeking shelter at Adsum House arrive with diverse experiences and a wide variety of challenges. For some, this might be their first experience with homelessness and they find themselves very temporarily at Adsum while get back on their feet.
