Wearing a Pink Floyd T-shirt, it’s evident that music has always played an important role in Jerry’s life. When asked when he got married, he easily answers, "It was the year The Eagles released ‘Hell Freezes Over’." He smiles. "That’s what all my friends said, Hell must have frozen over if Jerry is getting married.".
There is a crisis in Victoria that keeps me awake at night. That crisis is Tent City. And the question that keeps running through my mind is, what can Our Place do to help?
The answer isn’t simple nor easy. Our first response was to work with BC Housing, an arm of the provincial government, to open not one, but three transitional housing options.
At Our Place, we are always working at creating the best opportunities to help the most vulnerable take those first steps toward a life changed. One of those recent opportunities has been in transforming 15 of our transitional housing units into a new recovery floor.
