The Ventura County Credit Union was founded in 1950, and began operating out of the Ventura County Courthouse, just beneath a stairwell. Starting with just a few employees and one volunteer with a cash drawer, the VCCU began assisting members with their financial goals. The VCCU’s philosophy was simple: people helping people. This philosophy is no different today, and the VCCU continues to strive to help members meet their financial goals every day. Today, VCCU has expanded to more than $690 million in assets, and more than 65,000 members.
The Ventura County Area Agency on Aging, an agency of the County of Ventura, is the principal agency in Ventura County charged with the responsibility to promote the development and implementation of a comprehensive coordinated system of care that enables older individuals, individuals with disabilities, and their caregivers to live in a community-based setting and to advocate for the needs of those 60 years of age and older in the county, as well as individuals with disabilities, providing leadership and promoting citizen involvement in the planning process as well as in the delivery of services.
