VCFJC provides a caring, safe environment where victims and their families can access the comprehensive services they need to recover, heal and break the cycle of violence.  All services are offered free of charge.

Erik Nasarenko was appointed District Attorney in January 2021 after serving as a prosecutor since 2008, as Mayor of Ventura, a city councilmember, and as the DA representative to Homeless Court.  As part of his commitment to protecting victims and seeking justice in all our communities, Erik is expanding the Mental Health Unit and working to create domestic violence housing and a new Family Justice Center in Oxnard.

Michael R. Jump is Chief Deputy Ditsrict Attorney and leads the DA’s Victim and Community Services Division.  Mike is the Executive Director of Ventura County’s first Family Justice Center.

Heather Abbott Gonzalez’ family are survivors of crime.  After working to ensure that her daughter received the justice she deserved, Heather went on to change how sexual assault is addressed in our community, helping to establish the Family Justice Center and Voices of Ventura County.
