What Is The Commission For Women?
The Ventura County Commission for Women, established in 1981, encourages, supports and facilitates the empowerment and education of Ventura County women. The Commission serves as advisers to the Board of Supervisors on issues impacting and relating to women, and coordinates efforts with federal, state and local community groups to improve the quality of life for women.
In addition, at the request of the Board of Supervisors, the Commission will undertake studies or tasks, depending on resources being provided.
Commission meetings are held monthly on the second Saturday and are open to the public.

With the new laws governing welfare, throughout the nation, there is a push to get out into the job market, but without any safety net when things don’t go well. Many needs associated with working will require massive assistance– childcare, transportation, education and training. But there is also a desperate need for individual volunteer mentors for women facing an unfamiliar world. Everyone can remember their first job and the feeling of being overwhelmed and a little lost. Knowledge is mainly gained through experience – but the journey is much easier with help!
