Since we opened our doors in 1994, Casa Pacifica has provided hope and help for more than 29,000 children and their families. Each year, we admit more than 4,000 children into one of our 18 programs on campus and in the community - the equivalent of one child out of every school classroom in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties. Our below Program Wish Lists help to provide much needed items and necessities for the children and youth we serve.

Several years ago Casa Pacifica decided to address the serious lack of services that exist for foster youth once they emancipate from the foster care system. An Alumni Association was created to reestablish contact with children/youth who had ever received services from Casa Pacifica with the intention to not only provide what help it could, but to also direct alumni to community resources that could help them with their needs. The Transitional Youth Services program (TYS) grew out of addressing those alumni needs and now provides assistance with independent living skills, housing, education, employment, transportation, and many other needs important to our alumni.
