When we look at the faces of all the people who come into Our Place on a daily basis, the one question that constantly runs through our minds is: "How can we better meet their needs?" Food, clothing and shelter from the elements are just the beginning of what we, with the support of our donors and volunteers, offer to the most vulnerable in our community.

When Rose was studying to earn her Business Administration degree in Prince George, she never set her sights on future goals or dreams. But if she had, it’s unlikely that she would ever have imagined trying to live on a government allowance of $500 per month when her rent cost $495.

With a fiscally responsible and proactive leadership, plus a team of impassioned outreach, housing, custodial, kitchen, security and maintenance staff, the future has never looked brighter.
