TELL ME ABOUT VISTA VOICE PROGRAM...

Program Type: Community-Based

To Make Referrals: Clients are referred to VOICE through the forensic psychologist from Ventura County Behavioral Health who receives referrals from the Ventura County Probation Department.

Who We Serve: Adults ages 18 and older.

Hours of Operation:

  • Monday - Friday: 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • After hours: Staff are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year

About the Program: The California AB (Assembly Bill) 109 VOICE (Ventura Opportunities for Integrating into the Community Environment) program is an Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) model program that provides services to persons who are coming out of the California Department of Corrections (CDCR), are in need of mental health services, and have been designated to be supervised by the Ventura County Probation Department, rather than by parole.

The services provided are outpatient and often take place in the field rather than in the office. However, the office also has a \u0022Welcoming Center\u0022 where clients can come to interact, relax, and socialize from 10:00 a.m.to 4:00 p.m.

Monday through Friday. This Center provides a space where people coming out of the prison system can share with one another about their challenges with reentry back into mainstream society. Those challenges often represent the greatest obstacles that persons who have been incarcerated experience upon their release from custody.
