Ventura County Children and Family Services' Foster VC Kids, soon shifting to Homes with Heart VC, has been an innovative brand in the state of California serving predominantly as a recruitment tool in Ventura with a focus on family empowerment and having resource families walk alongside and support our families on their journey to reunification. Recognized as an innovative and forward thinking agency, Ventura County Children and Family Services are shifting toward a more overarching brand which will continue to express that today's foster care system is making a positive shift. Strengthening VC Families is forming to better express the reunification and the initiatives put in place here in Ventura County to empower and support the entire family including biological parents, resource families and youth.
