Free Items for Veterans

Gold Coast Veterans Foundation is addressing an ongoing need by Ventura County veterans and their families: physical items. These physical items ensure the safety and well-being of our veteran population in need, including homeless and at-risk veterans, recently-housed veterans, and disabled veterans.

As you can see in our above montage, we have already assisted many Ventura County veterans and their families in need. We have connected medical equipment and household furnishings that have been donated by generous members of our community. We want to help you, the veteran or family member in need, as well!
