Casa Pacifica Centers for Children and Families was conceived of in the late 1980s in direct response to a lack of services in Ventura County for children entering the foster care system – the lack of local services was resulting in out-of-county placements, far away from family, school, and all that was familiar. A public/private sector steering committee formed which raised the $10 million needed to build Casa Pacifica, which opened in 1994. Since then, Casa Pacifica has expanded its services, now serving both Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties. Their 15 nationally-accredited programs serve approximately 400 children and families daily and encompass everything from intensive residential treatment to in-home services in schools and the community.
