Our Place is a community centre serving Greater Victoria's most vulnerable citizens: the working poor, impoverished elderly, the mentally and physically challenged, the addicted and the homeless. We serve over 1,800 meals per day, and provide hot showers, free clothing, counseling and outreach services, plus 45 transitional housing units at our Pandora location. Most importantly, we provide a sense of hope and belonging to our neighbours in need.
We have a popular Arts Collective who meets every Monday evening. We need someone from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm to support our lead volunteers. You don't need to be an artist to volunteer, just someone who likes playing with art supplies or writing prose/poetry or photography and most importantly, likes to chat.
If you would like to join the fantastic team of volunteers at Our Place Society please email or phone me to come in and have a tour and discuss the program. (And please email me through your personal email account as our firewall does not like Craigslist email relay addresses - or phone me. Thanks.)
