Who We Are

The City Center and its staff, case managers, therapists, and mentors are dedicated to helping homeless families – often single parent families transition from homelessness to independence. We use a variety of methodologies, frameworks, and perspectives all with Christ at the center. We do this over the course of many months – the residents and their care team put in a lot of hard work – but its all worth it.  Though the housing is temporary, it IS a place to call their own during that time, where they can feel safe, find some needed stability in their life and have a place where they can concentrate on getting their life under control. Residents are given more than just spiritual and life skills.

Residents are empowered to become financially stable through a savings program and employment requirement. With this help and structure, our residents will find themselves back on their feet and on their own. All it takes is a willing heart, and determined spirit, and a heart of surrender.

If this resonates in your heart and you want to aid us in our mission to end homelessness in Ventura, please consider a tax-deductible donation. If you are interested in something more might we suggest sponsoring a room or becoming a mentor.
