A look into the opening hour of #ProjectConnect2020.

Project Connect is a day of community, human connection and knowledge sharing. We want to thank Brianna Bear, the Executive Director of Oasis Society for opening up the event in ceremony, prayer and song, The Salvation Army Community Response Unit for serving lunch, United Way Greater Victoria’s Labour Committee and their members who served the spaghetti and meatball dinner, and the many organizations who provided services and support throughout the day.

We are excited to take this energy into the new year and encourage everyone in our region to amplify the voices around you, form relationships and focus on solutions!

Project Connect 2020 was made possible thanks to funding from United Way of Greater Victoria and the amazing team of volunteers from our partners like Our Place Society Victoria Cool Aid Society Anawim and the United Way’s #womenunited group.
