    Another year has passed and the situations facing homeless people on the streets of Victoria remain horrific.

    109 people died while living homeless on the streets of Victoria in 2007, this statistic is based on the number of funeral services held at ‘Our Place’ which is the primary drop-in center in downtown Victoria.
