The Nancy R. Brandt Auxiliary was certified in 1990. Membership consists of professional women who are employed 20 hours or more a week. Meetings are held in the evenings to accommodate their members. In 2001 the Assault Survivor Kits® philanthropic program was established by the auxiliary to provide the distribution of new clothing and personal items to victims of abuse. This service is in partnership with Safe Harbor through the Ventura County District Attorney’s Office. Victims of family violence, sexual assault, child abuse or elder abuse are provided with emergency assistance.
