Our Place Society – More than a Soup Kitchen
Our Place Society is a focal point in downtown Victoria for the homeless and vulnerable. The group provides valuable services and programs for those in need – beyond just meals. This fact isn’t as well-known as it should be. Many residents of Victoria still believe that Our Place is a soup kitchen… or even a homeless shelter. Both are far from the truth.
Aside from providing free meals, the hub provides free clothing, hygiene services, computer access, activities, pet food & care, and access to outreach workers, among many other things. This can be quite surprising to some. Steps are being made to clarify this through a comprehensive communication plan. What is widely known though is that the organization provides exceptional care for those who need it most. Helping to profile the added services and benefits will further allow the organization to meet their goals and help people improve their life situations.
