It’s a home for the homeless in Halifax, Bridgewater & Truro. It’s hope for the hopeless. It’s food for the stomach and food for the soul. It’s friendship for the lonely. It’s Souls Harbour Rescue Mission.
Souls Harbour rescues people from poverty, addiction and despair, by offering emergency help, such as food and clothing, life-changing programs, and a message of hope.
If you haven’t a friend in the world, you can find one here, where we strive to offer welcome, hope, and dignity to each of our guests.
Putting an end to poverty, hunger and homelessness in Nova Scotia means offering welcome, hope and dignity to our guests. Learn why we’re not just another charity.

DROP IN CENTRE
Up to 150 hot, nutritious lunches are served every weekday at Souls Harbour Rescue Mission in Halifax, Truro & Bridgewater. Our Drop In Centres have become a place of community. Our guests include men and women facing hunger, homelessness, poverty, abuse and addiction. We serve local families, as well as seniors from neighbouring affordable housing blocks. We offer free food, clothing, toiletries and household items.
An afternoon at Drop In means free local calls, the daily papers, magazines, as well as computers and free income tax returns in season. There is always a friendly face and someone to talk to. We provide a safe place to take those first steps to health and healing. All are welcome.
Meals are served afternoons Monday through Saturday in Halifax, and weekday afternoons except Wednesday in Bridgewater & Truro.
4 times a year, we serve up to 400 men, women, and families from our community a 3-course meal. $4.85 is the current cost of serving a meal at Drop-in. Food donations reduce our costs during times like Christmas. An extra turkey bought at Thanksgiving goes a long way to feeding people who are hungry in our communities.
It’s not just meals that make a difference. It’s people. One of these events can take 100 volunteers to pull together. If you are looking to volunteer in Halifax, Bridgewater or Truro, contact us to inquire about our next event!
