Ventura County Military Collaborative:
Supporting Community Through Awareness
The Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society Ventura County (NMCRS) had the opportunity to participate in the 6th Annual Veteran and Military Expo + Job Fair on August 24th. This premier event is annually produced and hosted by the Ventura County Military Collaborative (VCMilC), of which NMCRS Ventura is a member. It showcased the many organizations and resources in the Ventura County area that support and benefit veteran and military members. This year’s free event reached approximately 2000 veteran and military members and their families with 124 supporting agencies in attendance.
The partnership NMCRS has with VCMilC affords a greater opportunity to supplement assistance provided to clients. Understanding the benefits available to the veteran and military community, as well as the support gained from the myriad of organizations, gives veterans and military members a better chance at maintaining a path of self-sufficiency, lessening their struggle. Being a part of the VCMilC also broadens the awareness of services and benefits provided by the NMCRS, ensuring we reach the audience of our mission and vision.
Frequently check this website and follow NMCRS (@NMCRSVentura) on social media to keep up with the activities, tips, and articles that support the veteran and military community in Ventura County.
