Join us and walk through three hands-on exhibits that shine a light on what it takes to fund, build, and support residents who live in affordable housing.
Housing Trust Fund Ventura County (Housing Trust Fund VC) will host their fourth annual Compassion Campaign on May 11, 2023, from 5PM-9PM, in-person at the Museum of Ventura County. Sponsored in part by Ventura County Credit Union, this year promises to be another memorable evening as guests of COMPASSION CAMPAIGN – HOME MADE: FUND IT + BUILD IT + LIVE IT are invited to stroll through three powerful exhibits showcasing how safe, equitable, and affordable homes are funded, built, and lived in within Ventura County.

With the Museum of Ventura County as a backdrop, guests will be fully immersed into three hands-on exhibits complete with audio, video, and tactile items that tell the story of what it takes to fund, build and support residents who live in affordable Ventura County homes. Guests will be provided silent headphones as they are invited to first visit the FUND IT exhibit where they will learn that funding affordable housing is much like making lasagna. Moving on to the BUILD IT exhibit guests will “virtually” walk through a beautiful affordable community to experience all that goes into developing these homes. Finally, guests approach the LIVE IT exhibit finding themselves at a kitchen table witnessing the positive impact affordable housing has had on residents’ lives as they tell their stories.
“Last year’s Compassion Campaign was a huge success as we hosted our first ever immersive experience,” stated Housing Trust Fund VC CEO, Linda Braunschweiger. “Guests shared that being immersed really helped them truly feel the experience of facing housing insecurity. This year we’re excited to offer guest engaging exhibits to tell the story that when we all work together as a collective community we can create more safe and affordable homes.”
Housing Trust Fund VC’s annual Compassion Campaign draws a diverse crowd of decision makers, community leaders, change makers and advocates for housing, mental health, homelessness, farmworkers, foster youth, the disabled community, seniors, and more. This year’s unique immersive experience is certain to sell out as sponsors are seen as active leaders in strengthening our community by positively impacting lives through supporting the development of safe and equitable homes in Ventura County.
