Sharing the Warmth
Our Sharing the Warmth project is designed to help the homeless in our community. We are dedicated to providing new warm coats, new sleeping bags, and laundry supplies to our community homeless or neighbors who find themselves in need. In partnership with our Ventura County Sheriff’s Department and Harbor House, a social service agency dedicated to helping those who are most vulnerable, we delivered needed items for the homeless. Our Assisteens® Auxiliary contributed gently used coats to this project.
We are partnering with Harbor House, a community-based nonprofit organization in Thousand Oaks that addresses abuse and neglect issues in vulnerable youth of the area. It has recently set up a four-bedroom home to house six young men aged 18 to 21 who have aged out of the foster care system. To assist these male residents in continuing their education at Moorpark College, Assistance League of Conejo Vally has purchased six laptop computers and an all-in-one printer. With an on-site counselor to guide them, they will be provided with stable housing, a nurturing environment, continuing education, and life skills to help them transition to independence.
