Position Foot Care Volunteer - Medical Outreach
Location 919 Pandora Avenue, Victoria, BC, Canada
Impact Statement Our Place is a community centre serving Greater Victoria's most vulnerable citizens: the working poor, impoverished elderly, the mentally and physically challenged, the addicted and the homeless. We serve over 1,800 meals per day across our 11 sites, provide hot showers, free clothing, counselling and outreach services. Most importantly, we provide a sense of hope and belonging to our neighbours in need.
Description Footcare is needed on an on-going basis by the clients who access our drop-in centre at 919 Pandora Ave. Homeless people spend a lot of time on their feet, in second-hand shoes that get wet and stay wet. "Street feet" is common, plus foot complications for clients suffering with diabetes.

If you are an LPN or chiropodist or R.N. with foot care training - retired is fine - please consider volunteering with us for two hours once-a-week or even once-a-month to provide this very important service. The days and times are very flexible, even two hours a month can make a difference.
