As Northumberland County’s emergency 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.

Transition House strives to be a client-focused, supportive, collaborative and accountable organization. At the core of our strategic directions is our commitment to clients, staff, partners, volunteers, donors, funders and the community.
