Since 1956, the Ventura County Medical Resource Foundation, with the generous support of the community, has been able to provide student healthcare scholarships, dental and medical programs for children from low-income families, assessment and treatment for drug-exposed infants and children, chronic disease care and health care screenings to low-income seniors, and state-of-the-art medical equipment at hospitals and their ambulatory care clinics. Without quality health care, everyday life becomes daunting from taking care of family, to attending school or work, to being a productive member of the community.
