Immediate Housing Needed


We are a small family (couple + mini dachshund!) and we need your help.


We have been evicted from our home due to a malicious complaint. The vacancy rate in Halifax at the moment is hovering near 1.5%, and the vast majority of housing stock does not permit dogs no matter how small.

Samantha is disabled (fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis and PTSD) and unable to work full-time. Courtney has a full-time job. We are awaiting confirmation of Samantha's disability payment from the government, but that is a long wait that we can't bank on. 

The timing does not really allow any wiggle room.

We are fighting this eviction, however, we are also realistic. We are looking for safe, affordable for July. We need help with moving costs, damage deposit, first month's rent and utility hookups.  We also need boxes and help with moving. Because only one of us is able-bodied, we do need to hire help. Any help would be greatly appreciated.  We are good people, kind people, that unfortunately got caught up in someone else's issues. 

Please donate if you can. Please share.
