We are family.
Our Place Society has grown from a unique inner-city community centre to nine locations serving Greater Victoria’s most vulnerable, including people struggling with homelessness, mental health challenges, substance use issues, the working poor, and impoverished elderly.
Individuals and businesses provide 50% of the financial support for its programs and services. Our Place provides over 1,000 meals every day plus snacks, 400 units of housing plus transitional shelter spaces, hot showers, education, job skills, health care, addiction recovery services, donated clothing, counseling and outreach services, and a 60-bin storage facility. Most importantly, Our Place provides a sense of hope and belonging to our neighbours in need.
Your donations help provide people with warmth, nourishment and community.
It is because of your generous financial support, encouragement and faith, that we will all continue to build a strong and compassionate community – together! Your support means we can extend the evening hours at our Drop-in Centre and help bring people out of the cold, give them a nourishing meal, hot shower, and clean clothes.
Make a donation today so that Our Place can remain a place of nourishment, hope, and belonging during the time of year when people need it most.
