Project: Finding a Way Home (2018 - 2019)
Community Partner: Our Place Society
Teams: Home, YIMBY, Majic, Spark
Leadership Victoria's 2018-2019 cohorts were engaged with Our Place Society to create possibilities for Greater Victoria’s most vulnerable citizens. The cohort conducted an asset survey and mapping of Greater Victoria to identify opportunities for temporary supported modular housing. Each team examined case studies from around the world sharing successful projects that may be re-created, or lessons learned to ensure successful projects. Case studies and stakeholder analysis will assist in creating a model of community readiness to ensure accessibility to needed services and recommendations for supporting a welcoming community.

Breakfast at Our Place Society
Leading up to the leadership launch, students chose one of three dates to serve breakfast at Our Place Society. Each student and some of our coaches and facilitators participated, to grow our understanding for the people we may be helping. The values of love and compassion are embedded into the facility.
Invitation to Present Findings
In January 2019, it was announced by Don Evans, from our Community Partner Our Place Society that the Victoria Coalition to End Homelessness has invited the Leadership Victoria cohort to present their findings to their Board of Directors. The BOD includes several sitting mayors, LV funders and influential leaders in our community.
