How You Can Help

Nova House is a residential non-profit organization that receives some core-funding, but relies on private donations in order to provide the services we do. Everyone has different gifts to give and we appreciate any commitment that you are able to provide. You can help make a difference by:

  • Volunteering your time

  • Offering a financial donation, using the secure donate button on this website OR by mail (Box 337, Selkirk MB R1A 2B3)

  • Donations of birthday, Christmas, and other event gifts for distribution to our clients at these times

  • Donations of toiletries, such as shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, feminine hygiene products, etc

Donations of household items and clothing can be made at our Twice Over store, where the individuals using our services shop for free and choose what they need. For more information about Twice Over, click here.

For more information on volunteering, how and where donate items, or to inquire on items we may be in need of (in general or during holidays and special events), please use the contact information below:



All of the individuals accessing our services are  given vouchers to shop at Twice Over as needed.  However, often when women and children first come to the shelter they have nothing and they are not ready to go shopping.  For this reason we like to stock some clothing items at the shelter. 


We are currently in need of the following items:

  • Liquid (HE) laundry detergent

  • Fabric Softener Sheets

  • Baby wipes and Diapers - various sizes

  • Baby monitors (audio or video)

  • Towels - bath especially and hand towels

We are always in need of art supplies for our Art Programs, such as: canvas, paints, brushes, glue sticks, card stock, markers, pencil crayons, wax crayons, magazines, scrapbook paper, and other misc. items.

If you would like to drop off any of these items please call us at the shelter 204-482-7882, ext 0
