It’s been quite a year for the world. And while things have not gone necessarily the way we thought they would, we still can reflect back on a year that we courageously served our neighbors. We have had another successful year, thanks to you! 14,000+ neighbors were cared for, 4,200+ volunteers gave back to their communities, and 290+ community organizations partnered together. And together, we put $808,267 back into Ventura County in goods and services!
