Victoria’s Our Place is a community centre for the city’s most vulnerable. For many years – it closed at 5 pm weekdays — and remained closed on weekends. One year ago – funding became available to open the doors Saturdays and Sundays – and as of October first, Our Place is open till 9 pm every night.
Week after week, hundreds of volunteers offer their time, and their expertise, to show their support. Veronica Cooper met one of those volunteers, who’s been teaching clients her passion, one knit, and one purl, at a time.
