Informational meeting to become a foster parent
Location: Human Services Agency, 855 Partridge Drive, Ventura.
Contact tel.: 805-654-1564
Contact: Brooke Lubel
As a foster parent, you become a link in a lifelong chain. You can provide the unconditional healing, support, and guidance that can help a child and siblings thrive and grow as every child needs. When children have been removed from their families for whatever period of time, they especially need a loving parent to tuck them into bed, provide comfort and play, prepare meals with them, and even encourage them to go to college. If you are looking for a way to make a difference in the world, make a world of difference in the life of a child by becoming a foster parent. Children and Family Services welcome you to attend an open informational meeting to help you decide if foster parenting is the right choice for you.

CASA of Ventura County Informational Presentation
Location: Furnished upon Registration
Contact tel.: 805-389-3120
Contact: Bernadette Cardenas
Are you ready to stand up for a child who needs you? CASA is the only volunteer organization that empowers everyday citizens as officers of the court. In an overburdened social welfare system, abused and neglected children often slip through the cracks among hundreds of current cases. CASA volunteers change that. Appointed by judges, CASA volunteers typically handle just one case at a time—and commit to staying on that case until the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. While others may come and go, CASA volunteers provide that one constant that children need in order to thrive.

To enroll in our informational session, call 805.389.3120, Fax to 805.389.3451 ATTN: Bernadette Cardenas, or Email registration to
After you have registered, you will receive location information by email or phone call.
