About Our Place Society

Coldest Night of the Year 2023 at Our Place Society


Join Our Place Society on February 25 for an evening time walk in solidarity with Victoria’s Homeless community. Sign up for an engaging evening of social action to help the people in your society who need it the most.


Coldest Night of the Year is a unique way for you and your business, school, church or community group to be part of a national event, and to support Our Place Society to make a difference in your community.


What’s happening?

The evening will include music, food and prizes as well as a chance to meet and connect with the homeless community you’ve come to support.
