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. Most importantly, we provide a sense of hope and belonging to our neighbours in need.
Our population lives in distress and we've found a drop in counselor who can provide a listening, empathetic ear helps reduce the stress and anxiety our clientele struggle with daily.
If you have two hours to spare once-a-week and would like to help this vulnerable and needy population please contact Patricia, the Our Place programs manager or if you would like more information, 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 you could always phone me. Thanks.)
