BCVC Obtains Non Profit Status!

The Breastfeeding Coalition of Ventura County (BCVC) has been providing breastfeeding resources in our community for many years. Three years ago, BCVC embarked on a new journey. Driven by a group of passionate volunteers, a strategic plan and expanded mission, BCVC set out to restructure the organization in order to serve the community as the premiere source for breastfeeding resources and education. With the dedication and collaboration of many local organizations, champions for maternal and infant health, a strong board of directors, and many passionate volunteers, BCVC grew and strengthened beyond expectations.

This growth reached a pivotal point this year, as our once-small grassroots coalition was recognized as an official Nonprofit 501 c 3 organization! This achievement would not have been possible without the support and collaboration of our volunteers, partners, and community organizations: PAC/LAC, First5Ventura, WIC, County of Ventura, VCMC, CMH, Public Health, Horizon Hills and The Butterfly Center, Vance Thrift and Biller, LLP, AWHONN, Clinicas Del Camino Real, and La Leche League. We are also deeply grateful to the donors and all of our supporters who have attended open board meetings and our local conferences.

Last, but not least, the families in Ventura County: you are the driving force behind what we do. Every family deserves easy access to support and quality resources in Ventura County. Looking forward with great passion and excitement, join us in our efforts to create an environment where breastfeeding is the cultural norm and Ventura County is saturated with resources for our families, in every city, every clinic and every hospital, echoing our vision to see every baby breastfed.
