The ICMHP is designed to serve low income individuals, and families without housing, or at risk of losing their housing.  Through funding made available private foundations such as the Lennar Charitable Housing Foundation, the Gene Haas Foundation, and local and federal government, clients have been assisted with move-in, and/or rental assistance.

* Home Share  of Ventura -
Homeshare of Ventura is basically a match program. The process includes an application, interviews, inspection of a home provider?s property, and thorough background checks and follow-up visits. The program is quite successful on an inter-generational basis. The home provider is usually a low-income senior, who might need an infusion of cash in the form of minimal rent; while, those seeking housing are often younger individuals living on a limited income. Although the program puts two people together, the match and terms are ultimately determined by the home providers and home seekers themselves. The staff at Homeshare periodically conducts follow-up monitoring to ensure the match is working for both parties.
