This Philosophy was put together in early 1992 to guide the Society which was about to be formed. Early members like Mary Gordon and Patricia, networked with Downtown Agencies, like the Mustard Seed to see if they agreed that a Society that was totally volunteer and grassroots and provided short-term housing would be a boon to Victoria. They sought a name that would express the philosophy and epitomize the human exchange of life’s gifts between persons in different circumstances of life, with a view to closing the widening gap between the “haves’ and ‘have-nots’ in our communities.
