WE ARE OPEN AND OPERATING DURING THE COVID-19 CRISIS.
We are taking every precaution to keep our staff and clients safe and healthy, following the guidelines outlined by the health authorities.
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:
ITEMS WE ARE CURRENTLY IN NEED OF AT THE SHELTER
All of the individuals accessing our services are given vouchers to shop at Twice Over as needed.

New or gently used single and double bedding: fitted sheets preferably light colours & comforters
Reusable face masks
**November is DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AWARENESS MONTH and we are running the POWER OF THE PJ'S CAMPAIGN. To learn more about this and where to donate pajama's, please visit our EVENTS PAGE **
