No, that’s not true. Currently, there are three shelters in Ventura. One at the ARCH, the Turning Point Foundation, and one at the Salvation Army. Turning Point has 14 beds for those who struggle with mental illness. The Salvation Army has 12 beds that are for men, women, and veterans. The ARCH has 55 beds, 38 for men and 17 for women, which has decreased to 32 beds due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing requirements. These beds are always full, and when there is an available bed, it is routinely filled within a day. With 386 unsheltered in our City and only 81 shelter beds, we do not have the capacity needed. The goal is to get individuals who are in the shelters housed, so beds become available for others in need on our streets.
