Woodlawn United Church tries to stay well informed about how to help people in our community.
We also offer the DUN-GEN, a used clothing store, located in the lower level of the Heritage Centre. You can find clothes and some other household items for very reasonable prices. The DUN-GEN is open Thursday and Saturdays 9AM - 12PM.
It is generally closed on Holidays and also during the summer. Check the calendar or call the office (902)434-8302 if you are unsure if it is open.
We have a very ACTIVE Outreach committee who work tirelessly to advocate for those who are financially struggling.
Are you looking for help in the community?
The Dartmouth Helping Tree is a great tool for knowing how to access community help you need. It was designed by the Dartmouth Community Health Board, Community Health Team, HRM Community Development, and the Self-help Connection to assist service providers and inform residents of the many helping resources available. If you or someone you care about is experiencing a problem in any of the areas listed, follow the arrows on the flow chart to find resources that may help. Below is a link to a list of resource and support services in the HRM including food banks, shelters, and meal providers.
