Let's work together to ensure housing stability is achievable for everyone in Colchester County!

Big news!: The Truro Housing Outreach Society has officially moved locations, we are now located at 29 Arthur St. With this change we decided we needed a new name as well; Hub House is now known as Haven House. Stay tuned to see these changes reflected in our website!πŸ€— πŸ€— πŸ€—Β 


Serving central Nova Scotia since 2014, the Truro Housing Outreach Society (THOS) is a registered nonprofit and charitable society that works to address housing insecurity in our community. Our facility, Haven House, provides emergency and transitional beds, personal care supplies, food, housing support, eviction prevention, and advocacy to anyone over the age of sixteen. We apply housing first, rapid re-housing, shelter diversion and harm reduction principles within our service delivery model, client case management and care plans. To date, THOS has served more than 650 individual clients. Unfortunately, due to the current housing crisis and heightened need due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we often operate at capacity.Β
