Ministry Partner Overview

A faith-based nonprofit organization, Project Understanding transforms lives by providing love, support, and assistance to the homeless and poverty-stricken of Ventura – loving our neighbors as ourselves.

Project alleviates and seeks to prevent homelessness through pathways to housing (Homeless 2 Home), tutoring our children, and feeding the hungry through one of our Countys’ largest food pantries.

Volunteer opportunities are available at the Pantry, administrative offices, and in our First Step program.
