Located in the city of Thousand Oaks, LSS Ventura County operates and manages emergency assistance programs throughout Conejo Valley. We provide short-term emergency assistance, addressing the immediate needs of marginalized and underserved communities, while promoting a sense of self-reliance and community among all persons.
Ignited by faith, we live out God’s love by embracing, equipping and empowering vulnerable people in Southern California.
Sharing the love of Christ, we are a community to care and be cared for…where the vulnerable are safer and stronger; where the dependent are self-sustaining; where the isolated dwell in community; where the weary will be given hope.

Gerald Brower worked 37 years in the Mortgage Banking business, and lived in his childhood home caring for his parents until they died. The 2017 recession cost him both his job and home.
He came to our LSS office. We gave him a bag of food and secured shelter at Calvary Church Westlake Village. We accepted Gerald as family.
He worked as a volunteer, answering the phone and greeting clients with the same compassion he had received. We helped Gerald find permanent housing in Ventura County.
