Beginning in December and continuing for four months, we provide for the homeless in our community a safe, restful and clean environment in which to spend the night. Our volunteers provide them with a hot meal, warm shower and clean sleeping space in the evening and a good breakfast the next morning.
A sympathetic ear and sense of dignity is something we also strive to furnish. We are a large number of people from the community with an opportunity to directly help people in Ojai who, for various circumstances, are less fortunate than ourselves. We are volunteers who may be able to participate on either a frequent or occasional basis to help perform the following tasks necessary for the OVFS operations.
In order to participate in the Shelter Program, all Shelter Guests are required to have a TB Screening Clearance prior to registration and dated no later than October 1st of the current Shelter Season.
There are no exceptions!
Information on where and how to obtain TB Screening Tests may be obtained by at:
Ventura Public Health Department in Ventura.

It is solely the responsibility of the guest to obtain TB Screening Clearances, including X-Ray’s if necessary.
