    Amgen Foundation Awards $100,000 Challenge Grant to United Way of Ventura County

    The Amgen Foundation has presented a $100,000 challenge grant to United Way of Ventura County to launch a landlord engagement pilot program. The goal of the program is to increase housing stock and utilize existing housing vouchers and housing subsidies provided by local jurisdictions and community partners to prevent and end homelessness.

    “Landlord outreach, engagement and support is critical for homeless individuals in our county to be able to utilize the housing vouchers they have in hand,” said Eduardo Cetlin, president, Amgen Foundation. “Lack of available units is a serious barrier to housing our homeless, and the Amgen Foundation is proud to support the United Way’s efforts to address this important component of the problem. We are hopeful that this challenge grant will mobilize additional support.” Learn more.
