The Lighthouse for Women & Children serves homeless single women and mothers with children. The Lighthouse established its Life Recovery Program in 1998, offering a transitional living environment that included a drug and alcohol recovery program. In 2003, the Lighthouse established a year-round emergency shelter that also serves as an overflow shelter when the two domestic violence shelters in Ventura County are full. In 2007 we acquired two additional facilities to expand services for women and children.
Today, with an overall capacity of 112 beds, the Lighthouse offers a full range of care specifically tailored to the needs of homeless women and children, including shelter, substance abuse recovery, case management, education, life skills development, vocational training, transitional housing, and referrals.
