Who We Are

We have built pathways out of poverty across Ventura County since 1965. We help people when they need it most so they can help themselves and their neighbors.

What we do

We empower families and individuals to live self-sufficiently and with dignity. With offices in Oxnard and Simi Valley, help is just around the corner for everyone most in need in Ventura County.

Lift Communities out of Poverty Today

Our Services

Strong communities begin at home. Our Home Weatherization, Food Assistance, and Utility Assistance programs keep families safe and secure, Homeless Services programs provide unsheltered individuals a safe place to receive the help we all take for granted, and our Community Wellness programs empower participants to make positive changes in their lives.
