Here IAM today still sober since the day I walked in to the office after walking 5 miles in the heat with my 2 month old baby who is now 15. Thank you for giving me the foundation to build my life back up.

Description: Emergency Shelter
Our Lighthouse Emergency Shelter is a 24 hour, seven days a week shelter offered to single women and mothers with children (boys up to age 10 – some exceptions made up to age 12). There is a 30-day stay limit (extensions can be granted for up to six months if appropriate).
Shelter intake appointments can be made from 9:00 am - 3:30 pm Monday through Friday. To qualify for our program, women with children must be biological parents or be able to demonstrate legal custody. Those with a disability, pregnancy, or other physical issues will be accommodated to a reasonable extent.

In order to process your application, you will need the following:
Women must have a valid ID or must obtain it with the first 72 hours of stay
    Children must have social security card, birth certificate, or another form of ID
    All shelter guests must get a TB test taken within the first 72 hours of stay

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.

Many of these shelters now have waiting lists. Please call before going to them. Many waiting lists are very long. Shelters and service also go out of business. Always call ahead to confirm that this location is still active. If you find that this location is no longer operating, please send us a comment using the form below.

If you have pictures of the shelter, I will upload them on this page. Please email me with the name of your shelter and the pictures to:
