Volunteer Truck Drivers

Items are sometimes donated to our non-profit organization for veterans. We need help transporting household items such as chairs, sofas, desks, tables, refrigerators, scooters, etc., to veterans homes.  If you own a truck and are available to transport any of these items within Ventura County, we would appreciate your help.

Volunteer Veteran Writers

If you are a veteran and have an inspirational story to share with other veterans about how your military service has positively influenced your life, please contact us! Other veterans would like to read inspirational stories to connect with.  You can either write at home or in our office.

Grant Researcher

Do you like to do puzzles and like problem solving?  Training will be provided so you can help us find grants for veteran programs. As a volunteer, you will assist our grant writer in researching funding sources for grants. Schedule is flexible.

Donor Relations Specialist

Work with staff and volunteers on fundraising projects throughout the year. Research individual donor & foundation prospects, aid in the production of mailing and electronic outreach, and work with database to maintain and update donor records.

Veterans Resource Coordinator

The Veterans Resource Coordinator is the person veterans meet with to find the services they need.

The Veteran Resource Coordinator creates a personal connection with veterans looking for assistance and follows up to determine additional needs. For instance, if a veteran has recently separated from the military, the Veterans Resource Coordinator will schedule appointments with a Veterans Administration claims representative or counselor, review the veteran’s resume and assist with finding a job, discuss educational opportunities with universities, colleges or employers, and show the veteran how to find out about local events available to them.

If you or someone you know is interested in volunteering for one of these positions, please call us at 805-482-6550. We look forward to meeting with you!
