Everyone needs help at some time in their lives! Recently Beverly, a young pregnant mother visited the Human Services Center with her two-year old child. That day she cam seeking help to escape domestic violence. She was alone and frightened. Her first stop was at Interface Children and Family Services, one of 12 non-profit agencies housed at the Human Services Center. There she was able to get help with emergency shelter, the filing of a police report, and counseling for herself and her child. They referred her to Ventura County Human Servicers in the same building so that she could apply for CalFresh, MediCal, and CalWorks, where job resources were made available to her. She learned that Conejo Free Clinic could supply free legal advice and that Ohana Health would provide a free ultrasound and ongoing support for her pregnancy. Lutheran Social Services will help her with housing.
Five agencies, all in one location at the Human Services Center, gave this young mother hope and help for a better future for herself and her children!
