Northumberland County’s only safe, accessible emergency housing shelter for men and women over the age of 18

Welcome to Transition House

As Northumberland County’s only homeless shelter, we provide safe, dignified and supportive temporary housing, life skills and transitional support services to men and women over the age of 18 from Cobourg, Port Hope, Grafton, Colborne, Campbellford, Brighton, Hamilton Township, and Alderville. Our service area includes all of Northumberland County.

The staff and board of directors of Transition House Emergency Shelter have been overwhelmed by the generosity of our community members and partners who have supported and celebrated our reopening. Donations of basic supplies, clothing and generous financial supports are so appreciated. These actions indicate our community’s commitment to ensuring that our most vulnerable citizens have alternatives to being cold, hungry and homeless, living in dangerous or precarious situations or even on our streets. We are honoured by that support. We will continue that work on your behalf.
