KENTVILLE, N.S. – A Kentville-based women’s shelter has announced it will break ground in 2019 on a new building designed with adaptable capacity and a hub for community services.

Chrysalis House Association, an organization which provides shelter and outreach services to women and children in Hants, Kings and Annapolis counties, planned a special event for the launching of its latest phase of fundraising for the project Nov. 23.

Executive director Ginger MacPhee, who also spent time as a shelter resident, said the new hub building will better serve women and children and result in less people being turned away.

“If other service providers meet women where they already feel safe and comfortable, that increases their connections with the community, their support system, so that when they do go back out on their own, they feel supported,” she said.
