Impact Statement Our Place is a non-profit organization 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 1800 meals per day across our 11 sites, provide hot showers, free clothing, counseling and outreach services, plus 400 transitional housing units. Most importantly, we provide a sense of hope and belonging to our neighbours in need.
Description We currently have doctors and nurses volunteering in our medical outreach services program. Some volunteer once-a-week and others every other week for two hours shifts. Our marginalized and vulnerable clientele definitely require more medical attention.

The most common treatments are:
- Wound care
- Triaging urgent issues
- Mental health counselling
- Addiction support
- Musculoskeletal injuries: sprains & back pain
- Ear, eye, nose & throat assessments
- Chest exams e.g. ruling out pneumonia
