30-UNIT PALLET VILLAGE ANNOUNCED FOR HENRY STREET IN WHITNEY PIER

Henry Street in Whitney Pier is the future home for 30 people experiencing homelessness.

 

The Nova Scotia government has announced the future locations of about half of the 200 pallet homes they announced were purchased from American company, Pallet, in October 2023.

 

Pallet is a North American leader in rapid-response shelter villages designed and built by people with lived experience. 

The single-occupancy units are expected to arrive in late January. Once assembled, they will be connected to power and water; final preparations will include installing fencing around the site before residents move in.

According to the provincial government, residents will have access to meals, transportation, washroom and laundry facilities, and supports and services to transition to permanent housing. Service providers for all villages will provide additional services like health and employment support based on residents’ needs.

 

In addition to water, power, and fire prevention services, the province is working with different partners and service providers across the province to set up the villages in the coming months. Timing will be announced once locations have been surveyed.

 

The Ally Centre and New Dawn Enterprises have partnered with the government on the 30 units allocated for Henry Street.
