Gold Coast Veterans Foundation

The mission of the Gold Coast Veterans Foundation is to improve the quality of life for veterans and their families in the tri-county areas of California’s Gold Coast. We accomplish this by developing new programs and services, as well as enhancing existing ones, for our veteran population.

In the short time since it started, the Gold Coast Veterans Foundation (GCVF) has had an impact in a number of areas. We provide support and funding for the Ventura County Veterans Home, campus Veterans Resource Centers such as at Cal State University Channel Islands, veterans programs such as Monty Roberts and Reins of H.O.P.E., and veterans memorials such as funding the flag poles for the Ventura County Veterans Memorial. We also support veterans events, such as the Military Expo at Naval Base Ventura County and the Reception for the Ventura County Stand Down. In addition, our advocacy was instrumental in establishing the Veterans Court in Ventura County. This Court is a forward-thinking program that gives our current warriors who have difficulty transitioning back into society an opportunity to be reintegrated rather than incarcerated. Not only does this help the veteran and their family, there are tremendous benefits for our community!

In 2013 the Foundation opened the GCVF Service Center. This one-stop-shop provides free space and support for nonprofit and/or volunteer veteran service providers in the tri-county areas, including over eighty-five (85) communitybased agencies that make up the Ventura County Military Collaborative. These service providers work closely together to ensure veterans and their families receive the assistance they need. The GCVF Service Center is supported by your gifts and provides a unique community-based environment that coordinates public and private sector services for veterans.

Only through your generous donations can the tasks that lie before us be completed. Thank you for supporting our veterans – they represent the best of who we are and hope to be as a nation!
