News from OurPlace and CoolAid:

What would be nicer than moving from a shelter bed or temporary room, to walking in your own space, complete with a comfortable bed, kitchen all set, and living room items and even a great book-- to get started on a new life of independence?  

This spring Our Place Society, together with Victoria Cool Aid Society have formed a unique partnership that will allow us to more effectively support folks who are moving from basic shelters in to more permanent housing.   

You can make a huge difference in helping those who are transitioning from shelters and are not equipped with the basic items we all take for granted; such as essential toiletries, dishes and bedding (please see the attached kit checklist). Can you please help our neighbours in need as they get started on their journey to independence? 

Thank you to everyone who has contributed.  We now have a full kit!
