Emotions are running high these days. More Nova Scotians than ever before are struggling with their mental health — Nova Scotians like Dora.

When Dora reached out to Project H.O.P.E., she was living in her car.

With support from the Project H.O.P.E. team, Dora was able to get our of her car and into an apartment, where she had access to water and electricity. The Project H.O.P.E. staff helped her get her new home set up and connected her to the services she needed to start her next chapter — including an employment support worker to help her find a job that would cover her expenses.

“I don’t know what I would have done without Project H.O.P.E. ” Dora says. “I am so, so grateful for all the help Project H.O.P.E. has given me. I am so overwhelmed and happy and humbled by everything.”

As a charitable non-profit organization we rely heavily on donations to keep programs like Project H.O.P.E. running.

Donations also help us deliver free mental health literacy workshops like THRIVE, Changing Minds and Living Life to the Full, as well as suicide prevention training programs like ASIST and SafeTALK.

The Emera Bluenose Marathon is May 17 – 19, 2024. Run or walk in support of CMHA NS Division and help more Nova Scotians stay well, out of crisis and out of emergency rooms.
