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.


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. You will not need to reapply. Thank you for your understanding, and we are looking forward to working with you again in the very near future. Please let us know if you have any questions.

When it comes to our world, it’s always a good time to check in with how we can love it back for providing us with a home all these years.

Friday, July 30 is considered International Day of Friendship. Celebrate with these ways you can show the people you love the most just how much they mean to you.

While normally “back to school” is reserved for children, it turns out that this time of year is important for every age. That’s because you’re never too old to continue learning, and it can help you live up to your true potential in everyday life.
