Greetings VCFJC Partners!

We are pleased to present you all with a new informational video about the Ventura County Family Justice Center. This video provides a fantastic overview of the success of the Strategic Planning event, and features interviews with various professionals and survivors. The film was created/edited through our partnership with VCAAA and is now live on YouTube. 

If you would like more information about anything discussed in the film, please let us know.

We thank you all for attending and continuing to make the dream of the Ventura County Family Justice Center a reality!

VCFJC is pleased to announce that we will be participating in Camp Hope 2018. For the last few years, we have sent young survivors of domestic violence to Camp Hope, an immersive outdoors experience at Lake Lopez that teaches campers about their inner strength and helps them envision a brighter future.

We are always looking for donations to help our campers make the most of their experience. This includes things like hygiene items (toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant), hiking supplies (hats, sunblock, water bottles), backpacks and sleeping bags. If you or your agency would like to donate to our campers, please contact Karen Simpson, at
The Orange County Human Trafficking Task Force will present a free one-day course in Ventura on February 26th, 2018. The training "will give professionals in anti-trafficking work in-depth information on how to effectively recognize the signs of human trafficking and enslavement, better assess the specific needs of victims and identify resources that may be available to first responders, professionals, and victims." This event will be hosted by the Ventura County District Attorney's Office and is funded by the California Office of Emergency Services.
