Transitional Youth Services provides mental health services, housing (THP+FC), alumni support, and independent living skills training.
In the mid-1980s, a group of Ventura County citizens became concerned about the lack of emergency shelter services provided to abused and neglected children removed from their homes. Their concern quickly translated into a vision for a campus-based crisis care center that could offer a range of assessment, trauma care, medical, and educational services to children entering the child welfare system – a place where children who have been removed from their homes could be provided all the services they might need “under one roof.” The vision, in turn, gave rise to an unprecedented public/private partnership which is recognized as one of the premiere collaborations among government and child and family services providers in the nation. Stakeholders raised $10 million to build Casa Pacifica Centers for Children and Families and continue to value this unique public/private collaboration. In 1993 while the campus was under construction, an extensive review of child welfare services data revealed that another group of children – those already in the “system” – were being placed out-of-county and even out-of-state due to limited local resources. In response to this growing county need, Casa Pacifica agreed to add a Residential Treatment Program (RTP) and a nonpublic, special education day school (Grades 1-12). Casa Pacifica opened its doors in 1994.
Community based services began in 2000, with Therapeutic Behavioral Services (TBS), first in Ventura County, and later, in Santa Barbara County. Currently, the agency provides myriad services in and for the community, including TBS, Wraparound, Mobile Suicide Response, Intensive Family Services, Kindle Family Finding, Parent Child Interaction Therapy, and Coaching Independence in Transitional Youth. All community programs send services out to the youth and families of our communities, and are operated in close collaboration with Human Services Agency, Mental Health, Schools, and Probation.
The goal of Transitional Youth Services is to support youth ages 16-25 who have been referred from either the children’s mental health, child welfare, educational and/or juvenile justice systems during one of the most critical times of their lives. Tran
Casa Pacifica’s mission is to provide hope and help to abused, neglected, or at-risk children and their families. Its vision is to lead the services sector in promoting healthy outcomes for children and in strengthening their families.
