About Our Charity
Bryony House, also known as the Halifax Transition House Association of Nova Scotia, has been improving the lives of women and children who experience intimate partner violence since 1980. As a feminist organization, we believe that all women and their children can live free from abuse. Bryony House ensures that women and their children are safe and have the supports needed to begin the long process of healing. From this step forward woman can create a life that is free of abuse for them and their children.
