Closet Couture Boutique is Nova Vita’s first social enterprise and features new and like-new fashions for women with all proceeds directly supporting women and children escaping domestic violence.
For over 35 years, Nova Vita has been providing wraparound services and safe shelter for women and families impacted by domestic violence and homelessness. As the needs of our clients and the demands for our services continue to grow, so do the operational costs and the reality that financial resources are becoming limited.
By opening Closet Couture Boutique, Nova Vita has created the opportunity to transform generous clothing donations into much needed funds to support women and families who need our services through the sale of previously loved, great quality women’s fashions.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Closet Couture Boutique first launched online sales in May 2020 via Facebook. In the winter of 2021, with the help of federal emergency funding via Brant United Way, Nova Vita was able to launch an integrated online and in-store shopping platform to ensure that the Boutique could continue to operate.
Thanks to the generous support of our community, Nova Vita is able to ensure that all of our clients receive the clothing and essentials they need during their time of healing in our our 33 bed emergency shelter. Any excess of quality clothing that our community donates is then featured at Closet Couture Boutique, both in our online store AND our retail boutique, which is located at 415 Fairview Drive, Brantford, ON.
When you shop Closet Couture Boutique, you directly support Nova Vita and families in your community impacted by domestic violence and homelessness.
