The annual Walk for Tender Life Maternity Home will be held on Saturday, July 11, 2020 at The River Community Church located at 889 E. Santa Clara St. Registration begins at 8:30 am, and each walker or family of walkers will be released after they register to begin their walk allowing for social distancing between groups.
This two-mile walk will take participants on a route around Ventura, from Thompson Boulevard to the Ventura Beach Promenade, with a returning stroll along downtown Ventura’s surrounding streets and returning to its starting place.
The annual Tender Life Maternity Walk is one of the main fundraisers they have during the year. Alumni, donors, current residents and the community come together to support Tender Life and the mission of helping these ladies get back on their feet and care for their child.
Proceeds of the Walk will be used to help operate this incredible organization. For over three decades, Tender Life Maternity Home has been devoted to serving abandoned and at-risk pregnant women and babies by providing food, shelter and personal growth opportunities in a caring home where “Courage Meets Compassion to Build New Lives.”
Tender Life currently houses up to six homeless, pregnant women, who receive pre- natal care, learn life skills and training, which all help to prepare them for motherhood and independence. Over the past two and a half years, Tender Life has been the home for 22 newborn babies.
