They need help all year long

Marcie Youtz is supporting homeless VUSD children.

After learning how many students were experiencing homelessness in VUSD (over 400), Marcie Youtz approached the school district officials about accepting contributions to support the homeless children, she realized forming a 501c3 charity, 805 Community for Children was a necessary part of the process in order to have the donations be tax deductible for the contributors.

Marcie Youtz, Realtor, and lifelong Ventura Resident, is retiring from driving a school bus after 20 years of serving the kids of VUSD.

805 Community for Children provides not only much-needed essentials such as food, toiletries, showers, and clean laundry to students in need, it also aims to imbue their lives with some sense of normalcy by also providing some of the “extras” so many of us take for granted.  Birthday parties, Equine therapy, prom essentials, sports funding, and so much more. A student being funded to play sports in school has an amazing impact. The feeling of belonging to a team does incredible things for a child.The non profit often gets a few donations in November and December but the rest of the year, donations from the community are scarce. They need help all year long, not just the holidays. Please consider helping.
