March 1, 2021
Ventura County, Calif.: Seeing the need to prioritize community, local mom Cascia Smith launched Ventura County Mom Collective January 13, 2021, a local parenting resource for moms. Smith, a mom of three, brings a fierce passion for connecting and providing a place for other mothers to feel comfort and connection.

“I personally struggled the first few years of being a mom and a loving, supportive community helped me through it,” said Cascia Smith, Ventura County Mom Collective Owner and Founder. “I want other moms to know they are not alone and there is a positive, encouraging place they can go to find mom friends, be a voice in their community, answers to the hard parts of parenting, and family friendly events.”

Smith has brought together a team of writers – who are also local moms – to provide insight into their very personal, and vastly different journeys. Ventura County Mom Collective is a one stop shop for all Ventura County has to offer, as well as a resource to educate, empower, and encourage moms. The goal is to build each other up and encourage moms of diverse backgrounds and points of view.

Joining nearly 100 parenting resource websites across the country, through City Mom Collective, Ventura County Mom Collective will have an impressive network at their fingertips. City Mom Collective crisscrosses the globe and represents hundreds of moms as owners, thousands as contributors and millions as readers. Being a part of this sisterhood of like-minded women sets Smith – as well as the moms of Ventura County – up for success.

“I hope moms and dads become involved in our community through Ventura County Mom Collective and discover it’s an incredible place to live,” explained Smith. “I hope to become an influential part of Ventura County that supports local parents and businesses.” Ventura County Mom Collective has already had an impact on the community by partnering with CASA of Ventura County for their Valentine’s Day Drawing Contest. All the drawings entered were given to the foster children in CASA of Ventura County’s care. Their Leprechaun Hunt also provided families with a fun activity that also supported 6 local businesses.

Visitors to Ventura County Mom Collective have experienced a one stop resource for all things family and parenthood. This has included a community calendar, Ventura County local guides, events, and beautiful stories of motherhood. Upcoming posts include: “We Don’t Get Mad About Accidents,” “Playgrounds and Parks Guide,” “2021 Ultimate Birthday Guide” and “Marry a Man Who Asks You To Leave.”

Our mission is to support and celebrate moms in Ventura County and provide trusted resources, fun happenings, relevant stories and hopefully a good laugh here and there.
