Our Mission


Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Ventura County believes that every court-dependent abused or neglected child should be safe, have permanence and the opportunity to thrive, and have a strong, compassionate volunteer Advocate.

CASA of Ventura County belongs to a network of nearly 950 community-based programs that recruit, screen, train, and support volunteers to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children in courtrooms and communities.

Special Thanks

CASA of Ventura County is grateful for the support of the Margie and Robert E. Petersen Foundation.


Thank you for your interest in becoming a CASA volunteer. We are incredibly appreciative of your enthusiasm and desire to help serve our county’s most vulnerable children. CASA of Ventura County new volunteer trainings have been postponed and will resume in January 2022. Over the next few months, we will be evaluating and revamping the program under the leadership of our Interim Executive Director, Teresa Romney. During this time, you may still submit an application. We will reach back out to you mid-fall 2021 with trainings dates and more information.
