• Help Celebrate a Special Day for

    Ventura County's Homeless Youth

    Every child deserves to feel special on their birthday. Sadly, many homeless children in Ventura County have never experienced the joy of a birthday celebration or even seen their name on a birthday cake. At the 805 community for children, we believe in brightening the lives of the youth one birthday at a time!

    Why Birthday Party Wishlists Matter

    Personal Touch: Many children experiencing homelessness often feel invisible. A personalized birthday celebration can change this, making them feel seen and cherished.

    Building Self-esteem: These parties boost their self-worth and confidence. Seeing their community rally for their special day can be transformative.

    Fostering Community: The Birthday Party Wishlists initiative not only benefits the children but also strengthens our community bonds.
