WE’RE TAKING ACTION IN OUR COMMUNITIES.
We are individuals, churches, businesses and agencies who come together to serve the vulnerable in our communities- those who often fall through the cracks. Throughout the year, we connect local volunteers with meaningful projects to serve under-resourced seniors, veterans, and people with disabilities.
BRINGING ACTS OF SERVICE TO NEIGHBORS IN NEED.
We live out our mission to serve the most vulnerable in our communities by partnering with agencies to give us insight into areas where volunteers can meet the most pressing needs, empowering volunteers to manifest compassion and service as representatives of their communities, mobilizing churches and businesses to serve in projects in their cities throughout the year, and raising the awareness of social and economic issues in our county.
SERVING THE VULNERABLE.
Our work consists of meeting tangible needs for our neighbors in need. According to the Ventura County Bureau of Statistics, seniors, veterans, those with disabilities and those living in poverty make up a disproportionate amount of our population.
We are seeking to change these statistics by creating a community of neighbors that care for one another. Our programs focus on meeting the needs of our neighbors in tangible ways.
24% of the county are seniors. Our programs assist them with projects that they cannot do themselves, such as yard work and minor repairs.
PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES
7% of the population are people with disabilities. We provide ramp and grab bar installations for those who have limited mobility.
11% of the county lives below the poverty level, and 32% are children. Christmas Shoppe allows these families to shop for toys at no personal cost.
5% of the county are veterans. Our volunteers care for the veterans in our county with meal prep and household chores.
