What does THANS do?
The Transition House Association of Nova Scotia (THANS) is an umbrella association of Violence-Against-Women organizations across the province.
Our organizations offer a range of services and supports to women and their families experiencing violence.
- Access to free 24/7 communal shelter and basic necessities
- Crisis lines
- Advocacy and court accompaniment
- Counseling and outreach services
Somebody Must Say These Things is an 8-part series that fully investigates Violence Against Women in Nova Scotia.
By speaking with survivors and the women who make it their mission to end the issue for good, this podcast casts a stark, unapologetic light on our society’s continued insufficient acknowledgement of Violence Against Women.
Map of Resources
THANS and our member organization receive core operational funding from the Province of Nova Scotia. Check out this resource map from our government partners, the Nova Scotia Advisory Council on the Status of Women.
