Adsum means "I am here"

RoseSince 1983, Adsum has been meeting people where they are, without judgment. In addition to absolute homelessness and housing insecurity, the women, families, youth and trans we meet face a wider spectrum of challenges that may include poverty, health issues, trauma and violence, all while dealing with systems that most of us would find challenging under the best of circumstances. 

We operate out of four locations in Halifax: an emergency shelter, and transitional and permanent housing that have supports on site. We also own condominiums that we rent to women-led families. Much of our work, including outreach, is focused on assisting women and families to find and keep stable housing. We believe everyone has the right to a safe and secure home.
