Dartmouth Shelter Society

"Frank Mackay House" is unique in Dartmouth and has been full to capacity almost every night since opening!!

We have provided food, clean laundry and a safe sober space to sleep for 80 men and women, average 14 people per night since we opened in May. 
We've served over 3000 meals. All thanks to you.


The need for our service is proving itself in Dartmouth and already we are thinking about ways we can expand to ensure no person is left outside especially when the winter arrives. We have to. The need is there. 

We still need your support to keep the momentum going!

With no municipal, provincial, or federal government funding on the horizon, this is going to be a community driven effort only. 

cold weather is coming and we still have a lot of work to do to prepare!

You could host a fundraiser or simply make a donation! Every little bit helps!! 

We are reaching out to you today. We need to continue to fund the "Frank Mackay House Shelter" and are committed to serving the community in Dartmouth filling this fundamental need for the most vulnerable among us.

This is a cause that everyone can get behind. Let's work together and make this happen! Please feel free to contact us to learn more about how you can support us!

Thank you for considering supporting the Dartmouth Shelter Society!
