Casa Pacifica offers adolescent and family services designed to treat victims of abuse and neglect, substance abuse, homelessness, and other behavioral and mental health issues. Their Camarillo, Santa Barbara, and Santa Maria offices work with more than 2,100 of the most vulnerable children and their families annually.
They meet youth and families at the most challenging times of their lives and help them overcome some of life's most difficult circumstances – abuse and neglect, complex emotional and behavioral issues, and family crisis. They restore hope, help children find joy in daily living, and improve families' opportunities to build a better life for themselves and find a place in the community where they can be successful. Casa Pacifica is committed to children and their families unconditionally over time and through all of life's ups and downs.
Headquartered on a rural 24-acre campus just five miles from the Pacific Ocean, Casa Pacifica's main Camarillo campus provides the perfect setting for children and adolescents to heal and find new hope for a better future. Their primary service area includes: San Diego, Los Angeles, Long Beach, Kern County (Bakersfield), San Luis Obispo County (SLO), Ventura County, Santa Barbara County and the Southern California/Central Coast region. Their primary fundraiser, The Casa Pacifica Angels Wine, Food & Brew Festival, is Sunday, June 2, preceded by the Yummie Top Chef Dinner Friday evening, May 31. It has steadily grown since 1994 to become the premier wine and food event in Ventura County, and has been voted both "Best Charity Event" and "Best Food & Drink Festival" of Ventura County since 2012.
