Connect with Veith House!
Serving Halifax's North End Since 1970

Welcome to Veith House

Veith House is a neighbourhood hub that provides services and opportunities to Halifax residents, connecting them with one another to build a healthier, more vibrant community.

Veith House has been serving the far North End of Halifax since 1970. We offer a morning preschool program, free counselling, group programs, trusteeship, drop-in coffee hours, occasional community meals, affordable drop-in yoga, meeting and program space for other non-profits, and opportunities to get involved in community gardening and food preparation.

Recently, we've worked with other community partners to launch a social enterprise - Future Roots - that recruits, employs, trains and supervises youth to provide services like leaf-raking and snow removal for older neighbours. Veith House is also the home agency of the North End Community Circle.
