Welcome to Hope Cottage

Hope Cottage is a charitable organization whose mission is to provide meals to those who cannot afford to obtain these meals themselves. Since its inception Hope Cottage has grown into a Halifax institution feeding over 200 meals a day – Monday to Friday. Each day a brunch of soup and sandwich is served from 10:00 to 11:00 and a hot prepared meal from 5:00 to 6:00. Hope Cottage was originally financed by the Society of St. Vincent de Paul.

Hope Cottage continues to be self sufficient with all revenues coming from unsolicited donations from individuals, community groups and organizations. No Gov’t funds are received by Hope Cottage. The annual operating budget is approx $300,000. Although there are 3 full time staff members, Hope Cottage relies on the assistance of numerous volunteers to help prepare and serve the meals. We also have the support of a number of local hotels, businesses, community groups and organizations who volunteer their time by preparing and providing meals on an ongoing basis.

We can seat about 90 people at a time and the meals all go smoothly. We have never run out of food.

As well as financial assistance we are always happy to accept donations of food, canned goods, coffee, tea etc. We regularly receive left overs from social events, weddings and other occasions which are welcomed and quickly consumed.

If you would like to make a monetary donation, you may do so using the link provided, or you may come to Hope Cottage at 2435 Brunswick St. between 8:30 am and 6:00 pm. Food donations can be dropped off there as well. Feel free to contact the office us at 429-7968 or the Director at 471-6123.

Andrew at Hope CottageMy Story – Andrew

Andrew’s journey to Hope Cottage began with a two-week trip to the Ukraine where he volunteered with a church group and helped at an orphanage. It was a big eye opener and instead of travelling overseas to help others, after his return, he discovered that he could help out right here in Nova Scotia.

He volunteered in various organizations locally before finding Hope Cottage. Andrew felt a calling to help more than his hours allowed, so he quit his full-time job to work part-time to give him more time to volunteer. After six months volunteering at Hope Cottage, he was offered a full-time job.

Today he multi-tasks between helping clients in the dining room, prepping the soup, making tea and coffee, setting up and cleaning up the dining area, the kitchen, and the entire facility. Besides Andrew working at Hope Cottage, his wife Kimberley and his Father Kerry volunteer every Wednesday and his Mom Nancy helps out at Christmas and during major holidays.
Andrew says it best: “I have many responsibilities at Hope Cottage – organize supper group & volunteer list – kitchen & office duties, etcetera.”

“I was offered this position and I’m so glad I took the offer. My job is very rewarding in many ways. I enjoy talking to the clients. Christmas is my favorite time of the year.”

“Hope Cottage is a great place to work, my co-workers are wonderful and I have an awesome boss. Everybody gets along so well.”

Day #7 of Hope

Meet Sean Doucet.

Sean is one of the Friends of Hope Cottage, and has been involved with our organizations for 18 great years!

When asked about his favourite experience with Hope Cottage, this is what Sean had to say:

"The first time I brought in turkeys for the Christmas meal I decided to bring my oldest son with me to help carve them. He was only 4 years old at the time. Since then, all three of my boys have come in to help carve turkeys and have gotten to see what Hope Cottage is all about."

This holiday season Sean suggests making a donation to help purchase food, or volunteering your time to help serve guests.
