On Monday January 10th the Rotary Club of Dartmouth was please to receive a presentation, via Zoom, from Linda Wilson who is the Executive Director at Shelter Nova Scotia
 
Since 1984 Linda has been working with people living on the margins of society in Halifax Nova Scotia. Even as a child she had an interest in why some people have more belongings and opportunities, and some people do not.
 
Linda completed a Bachelor of Arts in Community Studies at what is now known as Cape Breton University in Sydney Nova Scotia. It was there where she began her academic study of the social implications of housing and home life. From there she attended Sheridan College in Oakville Ontario and graduated with a Diploma in Community Planning. After returning to Nova Scotia, she worked for five years as a Planning Technician with the City of Halifax Planning Department.
 
Shelter Nova Scotia provides a safe place to stay for those in need and seeks to grow an effective continuum of services to support people while they transition from crisis, back into the community.
