It Takes a Village Community Outreach and Advocacy is a non-profit that delivers support directly to those who need it most in HRM.

We’ve been helping the most marginalized in our community for years, using donations to provide much needed personal care, clothing and hygiene products to people in need. Plus backpacks with school supplies and food items for families, and even laptops seniors, in need.

We’re run by a dedicated board and team of volunteers determined to make our communities stronger by supporting those who need it most.
