The Jeremy Castro Foundation began when our family lost one of it’s shining stars to heroin addiction. Today, Jeremy is in our hearts, helping us guide and empower others struggling with heroin. 


We want to change the stigma surrounding addiction, and give people and their families a space to find hope for a life without heroin.


Learn more About Jeremy Castro Foundation

Jeremy was a son, a brother, a friend. Most importantly, he was as human as they come. He shared his victories, and just as openly shared his struggles with addiction. Jeremy was active in rehabilitation and helping others in the Newbury Park area. His openness inspires us to this day. 

Jeremy passed in 2017 from an overdose of heroin laced with fentanyl. Though our loss has been indescribably painful, we hope that through this loss, others may find peace. We are here to make Jeremy’s legacy a story of hope.

We know Jeremy’s story is not unique. People with addictions are just as loving, funny, and compassionate as Jeremy – and they need just as much love and support.


No person is an island. Alone we are vulnerable. We can doubt the right path to take, and that doubt can let grave mistakes slip in. But together, we are powerful. It takes a village to raise a child. Our community is a shining example that the same village can come together and give that child a second chance at life. A life free from heroin – a life worth living. 


Here we come together to share our stories, to share our humanity. Share your stories of hope and victory, of struggle and loss. You never know who is listening, who needs to hear your story. Together we can be a beacon of hope to those struggling with heroin addiction. Together, we can take our lives back. 

The Jeremy Castro Foundation is a nonprofit organization helping people addicted to heroin and their families find hope for the future. 


At present, opioid drugs like heroin are widespread, even in communities you’d never expect. Together, we hope to make heroin addiction a thing of the past. 

When we stand together, heroin doesn’t stand a chance.
