Casa Pacifica Moves Locations
Camarillo, CA – Casa Pacifica Centers for Children and Families is set to move their community-based offices, currently at 975 Flynn Road in Camarillo to 751 E. Daily Road, Suite 320 by the end of the year. The Camarillo community-based office has been at Flynn Road since 2007 and houses Casa Pacifica’s Wraparound Program, Therapeutic Behavioral Services, In-Home Behavioral Services, Intensive Services Foster Care, and Foster Family Agency. Of the 400 children and families Casa Pacifica’s serves each day, 80% are served through community-based services.
The move comes during a busy time for Casa Pacifica, with demand up by 19% for their campus residential programs, and a 55% increase in referrals for their community-based Wraparound programs. Dr. Kimberly Bennett, Casa Pacifica’s Director of Community-Based Services Ventura County said, “Our community-based team is excited to be able to work together again and no longer separated by a floor,” referencing their current two-story building that physically divides the teams. “Our community-based staff collaborate regularly in supporting the youth and families we serve and this new space will make it easier for us to coordinate and help those we serve achieve success more quickly.”
In addition to Casa Pacifica’s main campus in Camarillo at 1722 South Lewis Road, the only location with residential services, Casa Pacifica also has satellite offices in Santa Maria and Santa Barbara. Shawna Morris, Casa Pacifica’s CEO said, “After many years of serving the community from our Flynn Road offices, we are moving to a centrally located office space on Daily Drive. We are grateful for the ongoing support of M.F. Daily Corporation and Cushman Wakefield and look forward to working with our Ventura County partners to expand our services in the community.”
