The Autism Society of Ventura County was founded in 1994 by local parents, educators and professionals to help support newly-diagnosed families and develop needed local resources.
First known as the Ventura County Autism Society (VCAS), the organization is a non-profit chapter of the Autism Society of America.
The mission of the Autism Society Ventura County is to improve the lives of all affected by Autism. We work to promote lifelong access and opportunity for all individuals within the autism spectrum and their families to be fully included members of the community. We achieve this through education, advocacy, the promotion of research, increasing public awareness, and collaboration with other agencies.
