    CASA, Court Appointed Special Advocates | Volunteers Needed to Work With Foster Children

    Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Ventura County is offering a combined Information Meeting with the Ventura County District Attorney’s Office

    CASA of Ventura County and the District Attorney’s Office need more volunteers!  Please attend a joint Information Session on Thursday, April 19th, to learn about these unique programs, the training, and how you can make a difference in a person’s life in our community.

    In an overburdened social welfare system, abused and neglected children need a stable adult in their lives.  CASA of Ventura County is the only volunteer organization that empowers everyday citizens as court officers to be that reliable adult and advocate for an appointed foster child. Currently there are over 750 children in the Ventura County Dependency Court System who need, want, and are waiting for a CASA Volunteer Advocate.  

    The District Attorney’s office will join CASA in presenting another Advocacy opportunity that provides services to thousands of victims every year and seeks qualified volunteers to make an important contribution to public safety and crime victims in Ventura County. Volunteer staff in the District Attorney’s office complete an initial 40 hours of training, which prepares them to assist victims with certain services, including obtaining domestic violence restraining orders, emergency shelter placement, court accompaniment, applying for state victim compensation benefits, along with providing crisis intervention and resources and referrals to community agencies. 

    To reserve your seat, contact Ken at (805) 389-3120 or [email protected].
