Our community’s homeless crisis is massive & growing and young adults facing homelessness are ending up on the street.


Over 50% of those who exit the foster system experience homelessness or incarceration within 2 years


Chronic homelessness costs an average of $35,578 per person per year


It costs an average of $106,000 per year to incarcerate a person in California, and 70% of unsheltered people report a history of incarceration


Unsheltered homelessness grew over in Ventura County between 2022 and 2023

We Cultivate Possibility

We see each of our participants as a person, not a project or a problem to be solved. We are each a part of the community, creating possibilities for a new future.


Housing provides a beautiful and safe place to build a foundation for the future.


Vocation training, job placement, and academic programs strengthen independence.


Wellness offerings support mental, physical, and emotional health and resilience.


Community mentor and volunteer opportunities build healthy relationships and strengthen support network.
