Adsum means "I am here"

RoseSince 1983, Adsum has been meeting women and children, youth and trans* persons where they are, without judgment, offering a range of services and support during periods of homelessness.

We operate out of four locations in the Halifax Regional Municipality: an emergency shelter, second-stage housing and two affordable, supportive housing buildings for women and children.  We also have 3 condominiums in an established neighbourhood that are rented as stable housing to women-led families.
