President’s Message
Dear Friends,
There are many caring nonprofits throughout Ventura County, but one of the most caring is Cabrillo Economic Development Corporation (CEDC). A long-standing community partner of United Way’s, CEDC is truly a champion of the underserved. That’s why I’m excited to share that this December we’ll be moving in to CEDC’s building at 702 County Square Drive in Ventura. Our new location is a responsible move that will save us nearly $750,000 over the course of our new 7-year lease term, and that, ultimately, benefit our community.

CEDC partners with United Way on a variety of programs, including the successful Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program that generated $2.5 million in returns to low-income individuals and families. We also partner on AmeriCorps and our volunteer literacy program, Books Bonanza. “This is an exciting time for United Way and Cabrillo,” said Margarita de Escontrias, CEDC’s CEO. “We have compatible missions, and we are proud of our long-standing partnership, which has helped those most in need living in our affordable communities, especially our children. With our shared location, we look forward to even more opportunities to collaborate.”
Collaboration that results in collective impact is at the very core of our mission. We are fortunate to have partners like CEDC at our side, and more lives will be changed as a result. That’s what it means to LIVE UNITED.
In service,
Eric Harrison 
President & CEO 
United Way of Ventura County
