COMMITTEE MEETING SCHEDULES

Welcome to the Ventura Social Services Task Force, "Dedicated to Ending Homelessness in the City of Ventura"!  (See "About Us" for more details.) The Ventura Social Service Task Force (VSSTF) is the one organization recognized by Ventura County, and tasked by the City Council of the City of Ventura, to end homelessness in the City of Ventura, according to the "10-Year Strategy to End Homelessness for Ventura County".

Ventura's VSSTF is an inclusive, volunteer organization.  Everyone in our community is invited to join us around the table to craft the actions moving us to the day when "Everyone Has a Place". We meet every 1st Wednesday of the month from 3:15-5:15 PM, at Family to Family, 303 N Ventura Ave


The Homeless 2 Home (H2H) program has the coordinated/intake and assessment referral line to assist the Homeless. The Case Manager of the day is available for an immediate intake and assessment. 

Who should call? Those who are homeless and receptive to services 
When? Monday through Saturday 8am to 4pm 
What do we do? The Case Manager will engage the client where they are or over the phone and begin the process of building a trusting relationship.  The Case Manager will ask the client a series of questions to provide the most appropriate referral (housing, homeless prevention, detox, sober living etc).   
What happens next? The appropriate referral will be made with a Warm Hand Off (the case manager will inform the agency that the client is coming their way).
Follow-up?  Our Homeless 2 Home team will provide follow-up assistance to the client to be sure the client's needs are being met. 

This number is for the City of Ventura only. 805/639-3600
