Donation Room


Do you have gently used or new clothing you wish to donate?

At Nova Vita, we endeavour to assist our clients transition to violence free lives. When a woman and her children enter the shelter, we provide the basic necessities (made possible through community donations) to provide peace of mind in one aspect of her life. One of the items we are always in need of is clothing – of all sizes, seasons, and for women, children, and men.

We accept:

  • New underwear and bathing suits
  • Gently used maternity wear, coats, pants, winter accessories, shirts, sweaters, dresses, shoes, jewellery, belts, fashion scarves, etc.

Please Note: We accept men’s clothing of all sizes as from time to time we do have male youth up to the age of 18 staying in the shelter with their mother.

Donations can be dropped off at Nova Vita, 59 North Park Street, Brantford by:

a) Utilizing the clothing bin in the parking lot at any time.


b) If you require assistance, at the main door Monday – Friday 9a.m. – 5 p.m. and someone will be available to assist you.
