Ribbon Cutting and Celebration for Casa Pacifica New Buildings
Camarillo, CA – Casa Pacifica will be officially unveiling its brand-new Founders’ Building at a Ribbon Cutting celebration on Thursday, October 24th from 4:30-6:00 p.m. The Founders’ Building houses Casa Pacifica’s Training Institute (accessed by professionals from around the country, caregivers, and families), its expanded Vocational Education Program for transitional youth, and administrative offices. The construction of the Founders’ Building and new Archie & Wells Fargo residential cottages was made possible through Casa Pacifica’s Building New Foundations of Hope $16.6-million Capital Campaign, which was successfully completed in 2017. The Cottages house the residential treatment component of Casa Pacifica’s Camino a Casa program treating youth at risk of, or who are returning from a psychiatric hospitalization.
Also being officially opened on Thursday is the newly named Dr. William & Susan Burgos Building, formerly Casa Pacifica’s original administration building which now solely serves program needs – including housing the on-campus health clinic, providing family therapy meeting space, clinical offices, Intake, family visiting rooms, and other program needs.
The Ribbon Cutting will take place on the campus’ circle driveway. Parking is available at the Lewis Road end of and behind the new Founder’s Building as well as in the parking lot facing the campus buildings.
