The History of Casa Pacifica


Casa Pacific is a not-for-profit organization incorporated in 1988.  A group of Ventura County citizens became concerned about the lack of services for children removed from their homes by Child Protective Services.  That concern evolved into a vision for a campus-based, 24-hour center offering a wide range of assessment, crisis care, medical and educational services for abused and neglected children.  The vision, in turn, spawned a creative public/private partnership that raised $10 million needed to build Casa Pacifica Centers for Children and Families.  Casa Pacifica opened its  doors to abused, neglected and severely emotionally disturbed children in the summer of 1994.  They are headquartered on a rural 24-acre campus five miles from the Pacific Ocean.  Their goal is to help children stay safe, at home, in school, and out of trouble .
