|Description & Services|
Fidelis House is a "Home Away From Home" located on the grounds of the Valley Regional Hospital.
It serves guests whose loved ones are in the hospital, and also provides accommodation for patients receiving treatment on an outpatient basis.
With the increasing demand on our hospital services, Fidelis House now provides in excess of 3,000 bed nights annually.
Volunteers staff the facility, 24 hours per day, 7 days a week.
The Society receives no government funding and subsists on a nominal rental fee, donations and small fund raising projects.
Fidelis House needs the support of its community to carry on its valued service.
Since Fidelis House opened its doors in 1992, volunteers have been the cornerstone of our organization.
We would not exist without the generosity, commitment and enthusiasm of our volunteers.
Our services for Nova Scotians using Fidelis House are dependent on our volunteers who help in the provision of direct services to our guests, help raise money to provide those services and help govern and guide Fidelis House through our Board of Directors.
Our volunteers contribute in many different ways to make Fidelis House truly a “home away from home”.
Our need for volunteers continue to grow. Our range of volunteer opportunities offers you the chance to work with us in many different and rewarding ways.
The commitment of our amazing group is at the core of who we are and what we are able to accomplish.
