About Our Place Society Westshore

On February 26, 2022 join us for Canada's National Walk for Homelessness. Our Place serves Greater Victoria’s most vulnerable: working poor, impoverished elderly, mentally and physically challenged, addicted and the homeless.


We will be walking downtown and we are excited to continue our partnership with Pacific Centre Family Services Association for the walk in the Westshore!


Coldest Night of the Year is a family-friendly walk that raises awareness and money for charities serving hungry, homeless, and hurting people in our community. Gather or join a team of friends, family, workmates or congregation together and as a community, lets walk, spread awareness and provide a sense of hope, love and belonging to our neighbours in need.

Across 14 core programs, our services are improving the lives of an average of 3000 youth-at-risk, adults, families, and seniors each year. On February 26th, 2022, join us for Canada's National Walk for Homelessness. We are excited to be partnering with Our Place Society for the 3rd Annual Victoria Westshore walk.
