Annual Fund

Each year Casa Pacifica must raise in private funds 10-12% of its budget to fill the gap between what it receives from government contracts and the actual costs of providing its programs and services, including several programs that receive little or no government funding. This year Casa Pacifica must raise $2.6 million to support the general operating expenses of its programs. Donors may give any dollar amount of their choice to support the Annual Fund.

Corporate Leader Program

Corporations and businesses pledge to donate at a specific funding level and choose which Casa Pacifica fundraising event(s) their gift will sponsor – the Angels Wine & Food Festival, Care for Kids Golf Classic, or the “Spotlight on Style” Fashion Show.

Casa Pacifica Health Services

One of the essential, basic needs programs at Casa Pacifica, Health Services sees every child placed in its emergency shelter and residential treatment programs, as well as day school students in Casa Pacifica’s Non Public School, and Casa Pacifica alumni and their children, whether they have a form of insurance or not. While most patients are covered by Medi-Cal, Health Services is only paid a fraction of the costs of an office visit and over-the-counter medications are not covered at all. more…

Coaching Independence in Transitional Youth (CITY) Program

For youth aged 14 and above, the CITY Program addresses the independent living skills, housing, education, employment, health, and transportation needs, etc., of transitional and emancipated youth. Currently, the CITY Program is completely funded through private donations as there are no governmental funding streams that support its type of services.

Safe Alternatives for Treating Youth (SAFTY) – Mobile Crisis Response Services

Based in Santa Barbara County, SAFTY acts as the first-responder to children and youth in crisis (usually suicidal or violent) with the goal to diffuse the crisis and reduce the number of incidents that require hospitalization, or law enforcement and juvenile justice involvement. The program also provides referrals to County resources that can help address the youth’s mental health needs. SAFTY provides its services whether or not the youth is insured through Medi-Cal or any other type of insurance. About 20% of youth, or 1 in 5, served each year by SAFTY are uninsured. more…

Music Program

Primarily funded through private dollars, the Music Program offers arts exposure to students in Casa Pacifica’s day school, and to Casa Pacifica residents through afterschool programs and private music lessons. The children experience the “healing power” of music through programs that offer a comprehensive music education and enrichment experiences designed to support their therapeutic recovery and education.

Therapeutic Camp

Offered spring, summer, and winter – Casa Pacifica’s Therapeutic Camp is the only camp program of its kind in Ventura County and offers educational, recreational, and therapeutic activities designed to meet the unique issues of children who suffer severe emotional and behavioral disorders. Each session the children and youth participate in activities that help them develop self-assurance, self-motivation, and self-worth; foster team work; develop social skills; explore creative and artistic skills; and stretch beyond their comfort zone. Therapeutic camp is primarily funded through private dollars.

Gift Card Donations

Gift cards from restaurants, retail stores, entertainment outlets, and bank cards (if they do not charge fees) are used throughout the year for birthday gifts for the children, individual or cottage outings, incentives toward individual goals, emergency needs for a child (to buy clothes for a new intake who arrived with nothing but the clothes on his back, for example), among many other purposes.
