The Buena Ventura Chapter has been supporting Childhelp programs in California since 1981. Although small in numbers, this chapter works hard to make an impact with the work they do to help end child abuse. They have two major fundraising events every year which utilize the creativity of its members to produce a fun and unique event for guests. The Hearts in Harmony event focuses on the Music Therapy program at the Village. The Annual Winter Program features decorated trees and is sometimes called Festival of Trees.
