New House - Opening 2024

We're proud to support approximately 600 Maritime families each year. Unfortunately, in recent years, we've had to turn away hundreds of families who came to us for help-and the demand continues to increase. Without a place to stay, families face being apart from one another at a time when their love and presence is so vital. While we have made some changes to our current space, we are limited in how we're able to modify the physical infrastructure to adequately address these important concerns.

We're building a larger, more modern facility that will enable us to serve an additional 600 families per year, and offer 6,570 more nights of comfort for families with sick children.
