The Partnership is a member organization with more than 36 years of family violence and abuse prevention work in Ventura County. The Partnership provides training, technical assistance, networking, educational, outreach, and communication resources for children, families, elders, and the professionals who help them. The Partnership includes numerous individual, organizational members, representing thousands of constituents from businesses of childcare, education, faith, health, justice, law enforcement, mental health, and social services communities. We have partnered with many agencies to help promote the 5 Protective Factors.
The Partnership originated in 1982 with the Ventura County Board of Supervisors designating the Ventura County Child Abuse Prevention Council as an independent no-governmental organization to meet local compliance for state regulations. Our organization has grown tremendously in recent years. In 2002, the Ventura Child Abuse Prevention Council was joined by two other leading organizations in the county’s family violence prevention efforts – the Ventura County Family Violence Prevention Partnership and Ventura County Domestic Violence Task Force. The newly merged group became the Ventura County Partnership for Safe Families. In 2003, the Partnership developed an alliance with the Ventura County Adult Abuse Prevention Council, previously named the Ventura County Elder Abuse Council.
The Coastal Tri-Counties Child Abuse Prevention Coalition(CTC-CAPC) members are committed to weaving a safety net for the children and families in San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and Ventura communities. We espouse the belief that all human beings have a right to live in homes and communities that embrace the values of love, dignity and respect.
The CTC-CAPC’s vision is our communities are free of child abuse; and our children are safe, healthy and thriving. The CTC-CAPC is sponsored by the California Department of Social Services, Office of Child Abuse Prevention and the Community Based Child Abuse Prevention Fund.
We build strong regional relationships in order to engage our communities in protecting children and promoting effective prevention of child abuse and neglect. Our regional collaboration engages parents and professionals who are committed to the prevention of child abuse and neglect. The result of our work will be that all children in the Coastal Tri-Counties Region are surrounded by nurturing parents and other supportive adults and our communities are safe and peaceful.
