Since 1984, CAREGIVERS has provided thousands of older Ventura County residents with one-on-one personal help and friendship. We help homebound seniors in the cities of Ventura, Oxnard, Pt. Hueneme, Camarillo, Santa Paula, and Fillmore. Our caring volunteers have supported these seniors, helping them with many tasks they could no longer do themselves. One of our featured programs is the Phone Friend program. Phone friends make weekly calls to seniors. Often these seniors are homebound and living alone. These calls provide reassurance and joy in the midst of what might be a lonely week.
If you are called to this special service, we would love to hear from you.

CAREGIVERS' mission it to promote the health, wellbeing, dignity, and independence of frail, homebound elders through one-on-one relationships with trusted volunteers.
CAREGIVERS was founded in 1984 as a community-based model to fill a growing need. CAREGIVERS has assisted thousands of seniors throughout Ventura County. CAREGIVERS volunteers are special people. Volunteers are matched with a senior friend. Generally, a volunteer donates 2-4 hours, one day a week. This might include friendly visits, transportation to medical appointments, friendly calls, and assistance with neighborly tasks.
