From the President of the Board of Directors
s the cover story for this issue of Heartlines joyfully acknowledges, Casa Pacifica
has reached the milestone of 20 years of providing its therapeutic, compassionate, lifechanging programs and services to our communities’ most vulnerable children and families.
Twenty years – the time it takes to bear a child and watch him or her grow to a young adult
who is attending college and choosing his future life path. I find it an interesting parallel that
Casa Pacifica currently finds itself in the midst of a capital campaign defining its ‘future life
path,’ expanding and improving not only its campus facilities, but the
programs and services it administers as well.
Keets Cassar
Just as young adults depend on their families to nurture and support them
as they grow to adulthood, independence, and success, Casa Pacifica has
had the privilege of having the foundational support of its own loving
family – the community – made up of caring individuals, businesses,
corporations, and foundations. Their support is seen in a plethora of ways
such as the kind efforts of on-campus volunteers Pat McDonough and
Rose Larson who have served as the nonpublic school’s librarians since
2006. Or through Eagle Scouts projects that have brought our campus improvements such as
the BMX bicycle track and a walking labyrinth. It is seen in the unselfish and dedicated gifts of
time, expertise, and then more time from our wonderful Angels, who host the four children’s
parties each year and organize our major fundraising events; and the Amigos who in addition
to time and expertise, mentor our children during their 32 fun-filled weekends over the year.
Then, of course, there are is the financial generosity of so many who ensure Casa Pacifica has
the resources it needs. And there is so much more, I couldn’t begin to mention it all.
On behalf of Casa Pacifica and the Board of Directors, I would like to thank the thousands of
individuals who have not only supported Casa Pacifica and its mission for the past twenty years
(even longer for our founders who envisioned Casa Pacifica so long ago) but have expanded,
enriched, inspired, supported, believed-in, and cared for Casa Pacifica and its children. You
have enabled us to offer so much more to the children Casa Pacifica serves than we could have
ever hoped. Thank you for your kindness, your compassion, your dedication, but most of all
thank you for being our unwavering support – our own family.
From the Chief Executive Officer
ince Casa Pacifica officially launched the Building New Foundations of Hope Capital
Campaign at the Founders Day celebration last October the campaign has experienced
several milestones. Most recently, in June we received an exciting $3 million investment
from the County of Ventura. This significant donation combined with Campaign gifts
already received – most notably a remarkable $5 million pledge from the Wood-Claeyssens
Foundation - have put us at close to two-thirds of our $21 million goal.
It goes without saying that this campus “build out” is the most significant project we have
undertaken since we opened in 1994 – replacing temporary, modular buildings and adding
more capacity for beds, “outpatient” services, and for strengthening infrastructure. The
Board of Directors has authorized construction to begin when we reach 85% of the goal;
another $4.5 million needed to be raised on top of the $13.5 million now in hand. Our
best estimates place ground breaking sometime this fall.
For the last 20 years Casa Pacifica Centers for Children and Families has provided critically
needed services to the most vulnerable and challenging children in our region. We have
admitted into one of our programs more than 25,000 children and youth. In our first year
of operation we cared for 350 children entirely on our campus in Camarillo. This year we
will serve over 4,500 children and youth in every community throughout Santa Barbara and
Ventura Counties. Our 17 different nationally accredited programs are all geared to help
children with the most complex emotional and behavioral needs achieve their potential and
live the most productive lives possible. I believe our work strengthens our community and,
ultimately, improves the quality of life here on the Central Coast. Though we have offices
in Santa Maria, Santa Barbara, and Camarillo to support the services we provide in the
community, our Camarillo campus remains our hub and our “heart.”
But, twenty years of providing emergency shelter care and residential
treatment to thousands of traumatized children and youth with
extreme needs has taken its toll. We have responded to the ever
increasing demands for our services by adding temporary, modular
buildings and by using every possible nook and cranny in existing
buildings – some for purposes not intended. Quite simply, we
have outgrown and over-used the buildings on campus.
Steven E. Elson, Ph.D.
Chief Executive Officer
And so, we have launched the Building New Foundations
of Hope capital campaign to replace temporary modular
structures, expand an existing classroom building, and add
new buildings to the campus (seven in all) – 55,050 sq. ft.
of total new construction. In addition, we will repurpose the
current administration building for “outpatient” services
exclusively. With the Building New Foundations of Hope
Capital Campaign we are acting today to meet demands that
will inevitably arise from our community tomorrow – preparing us to continue as a leader
in our field for the next 20 years.

Therapy Dog Updates - Archie, Baker, Tess and Otis!
rchie is quite the athlete these days as the senior member of Casa Pacifica’s therapy
dog team. To help his joints and muscles stay in their best condition and strength,
Archie visits his friends at the Barkley Pet Hotel and Spa in Westlake Village for
hydrotherapy and laser treatments twice a week. The Barkley is connected with the Westlake
Village Animal Hospital and Archie’s veterinarian Dr. Steve Rosenstein. Archie spends an hour
in the water tank treadmill walking at an easy pace that is gentle on Archie’s joints while the
water provides him buoyancy and its resistance works his muscles a little harder than walking
outside the tank. After his workout Archie’s joints receive laser treatment to help break down
any arthritic build up. The therapies have worked wonders with Archie’s range of movement
and strength, and it is obvious he is feeling great by his perky spirit!
On a more serious note, we are happy to announce that Baker has responded well to heart
surgery which was performed in February. Baker was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect
and without surgery could have died at
any moment. Dr. Imari Waterman of
Advance Veterinary Care Center, a
veterinary cardiology specialist,
performed the surgery with a team
of three other doctors. Baker was the
largest dog she had ever operated on.
It was touch-and-go during the fourhour operation. After a day in recovery
it was joyfully apparent that the surgery
had improved Baker’s condition
substantially. Baker will now live a
much healthier life, though he will
need to remain on medication and will
require check ups at regular intervals.
After two days in the hospital Baker
returned to work, and minus some
slight discomfort where the incision
was made in his leg to insert the

happy-go-lucky, loveable self!
Tess is a bittersweet story. While a sweet, loving girl, especially with Casa Pacifica’s children,
her personality was showing to be one that would be much happier in a home setting with
one family, rather than the hustle and bustle that comes with working on Casa Pacifica’s
campus. She was doing her job, but it was clear she wasn’t happy. Tess has now gone to live
with Casa Pacifica’s Facilities Manager where she is has settled right in and loves being the
sole family dog (the only competition is two cats), going long walks, and guarding her new
home and family. While we miss her here on campus, it has been a wonderful transition for
Tess and we are glad to hear she is so happy and where she belongs.

Finally, as you can surmise from the title of this article – Casa Pacifica has a new therapy
dog, Otis Chandler Bing! Otis came to Casa Pacifica in April at 8 weeks old and in the three
short months he’s been here has already grown to weigh 86 lbs.! Like Archie with his
‘assistant’ Vicki Murphy, Otis goes home at night with Josh Lepore, the CITY Program’s
Clinical Supervisor, but returns to Casa Pacifica each weekday to learn the ropes of being a
therapy dog from his fellow canine therapists. He’s catching on fast, and as you can
imagine, the kids love to visit Otis! Casa Pacifica is grateful to have these furry, loving souls
on our campus to provide their unique, special brand of healing to our children and youth!

Planned Giving
Gifts of Life Insurance: Getting Started
ife insurance is an asset you may not think of donating to Casa Pacifica until you hear
how powerful, practical and simple it can be.
How It Works
When you own a life insurance policy with accumulated cash value, you're essentially sitting
on a pile of money. When the original purpose for the protection no longer applies—such as
to educate children now grown or to provide financial security for a spouse now deceased—
your life insurance can be redirected to help support a worthwhile cause. One option is
simply to name Casa Pacifica as the primary beneficiary. (Naming us as beneficiary while you
retain ownership of the policy, however, does not qualify you for an income tax deduction.)
Or, you can name us as the beneficiary and also assign us ownership of the policy as a
current charitable gift. Doing so provides you tax benefits as outlined below.
How You Benefit
When you assign us ownership of a life insurance policy and also name us as the beneficiary,
the following good things happen:
• You receive an income tax charitable deduction, available under most circumstances.
• You realize tax savings from use of the deduction, and these savings can be invested
for future income.
• You reduce your future estate tax liability.
Did you know?
If you are concerned that supporting our work will reduce your family's inheritance, a new
life insurance policy equal to your charitable gift can replace the value of your loved ones'
Donating a New Policy
Perhaps you don't own an existing policy but still realize how beneficial giving life insurance
can be. If so, you can—in most states—purchase a new insurance policy and name a qualified
charity like ours as the beneficiary and owner of the policy. Rather than paying premiums to
the insurance company, you make tax-deductible cash gifts to cover the annual premiums.
Even greater leverage is possible when two donors, usually spouses, purchase a two-life
second-to-die policy. With two lifetimes before the payment of death benefits, a future gift
to us will cost you even less.

Wine, Food & Brew Festival – The Name Wasn’t The Only Thing New This Year!
n recognition of the growing
popularity around the country for
specialty beers, the Angels Wine &
Food Festival adopted a new name
this year - the Wine, Food & Brew
Festival! The Festival took place June
1st on California State University
Channel Islands’ beautiful campus
and was once again hosted by the
Zarley and Van Huisen Families, and
joining them this year – Union Bank.
As always, guests enjoyed sampling a
wonderful range of delicious food
creations from 85 restaurants,
caterers, bakeries, specialty food
shops, and superb wines, brews, and
beverages from over 150 wineries, breweries, and beverage vendors. The Festival, we are
proud to announce, raised over $450,000 (net), a record amount, to support Casa Pacifica
Centers for Children and Families’ valuable services to Ventura County’s abused, neglected
and at-risk children and their families!
Congratulations to
our 2014 Winners of the
Competition Winners!
1st Place: Institution Ale
Maple Brown Restraint
2nd Place: FirestoneWalker
Brewing Co.
Easy Jack-Session IPA
3rd Place: Island Brewing Co.
King Tide-Double IPA
In keeping with the name change, the Festival
held its first ever ‘Best in Fest’ beer competition
for its independent, craft, and microbrew
exhibitors. The competition was judged a month
ahead of time and the winning brew was
celebrated the day of the Festival. “Since the
number of Festival exhibitors featuring specialty
beers has grown steadily over the past few years
and people’s interest in beer is reaching toward a
level equal to connoisseurs of wine, it was a
logical step to add a
competition just for the
brews,” shared Carrie
Hughes, Casa Pacifica’s
Director of Development
& Public Relations, “We
are excited to have
launched this new event!”
Chef Dinner – which was hosted by
the Cassar Family and took place on
the Friday night preceding the Festival.
Guests enjoyed a nine-course meal
prepared by previous Yummie
competition winners, pairing each course with its own special wine selection from local
winemakers. One course was paired with the winning brew of the “Best in Fest” beer
competition. The evening also featured Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean and his
impeccable humor as the Master of Ceremonies, as well as live entertainment, and small
silent and live auctions. A special highlight of the evening was each of the participating
chefs spoke about their recipes and shared some special kitchen knowledge with the
guests. The Yummie Top Chef Dinner raised nearly $20,000 and was a tremendous hit.
The dinner guests are already looking forward
to next year’s event. (See page 9 for photos
and list of participating chefs)
Wells Fargo once again generously sponsored
the Festival’s VIP Lounge which featured its
own delicious fare prepared by Plated Events
by Chef Jason Collis, wine from Malibu Family
Wines, the Anheuser Busch Belgium Beer
Garden, and entertainment by perennial
favorite band Sound Effect. VIP guests also
enjoyed a special welcome champagne
reception hosted by Mastro’s Restaurant
before entering the festival grounds featuring
exclusive entertainment and yummy
hors d’oeurves.
An exciting day of live entertainment, sponsored by The Patio Restaurant at Players
Casino, presented fabulous performances by Benise and His Band of Gypsys (who were
accompanied by captivating aerial artists) and Wes Quave
Live – a multi-decade cover band that had guests filling the
dance floor. Bruce Barrios – the best DJ in Ventura County
– served as the Master of Ceremonies and DJ for the day.
The addition of Living Vines performers this year roaming
the grounds fascinated everyone with their exotic beauty.
Festival-goers also enjoyed perusing an extensive silent
auction of themed baskets and a sports memorabilia booth.
In addition to the new
name and the beer
competition, the Wine,
Food & Brew Festival held
its first-ever special
dinner – the Yummie Top
w w w . c a s a p a c i f i c a . o r g
Many guests took advantage of the special “Safe Ride
Home” shuttle service offered by Roadrunner Shuttle &
Limousine, which provided door-to-festival-to-door rides.
For those who decided during the event that they shouldn’t
drive home, there was a last minute service offered by the
Safe Ride Home program as well.

The Winners
Culinary Competition
The 4th annual Yummie culinary competition showcased
exhibiting Festival chefs’ entries, judged in either a Savory or
Sweet category based on flavor, presentation, innovation, and
quality. Entries were sampled by a panel of celebrity chef
judges, television, radio, and print media personalities and
food columnists, and were judged based on which chef’s dish
they felt was the “Yummiest.”

As always, the funds raised by the Wine, Food & Brew Festival will help Casa Pacifica
in meeting the $3.1 million in private funds the agency must raise to fill the gap
between what it receives through government contracts and what it actually costs to
run its programs and services.
Casa Pacifica is very grateful to the Festival’s generous Hosts, the Zarley Family, the
Van Huisen Family and Union Bank; to Wells Fargo, the VIP Lounge Sponsor; to the
Patio Restaurant at the Players Casino, the Entertainment Sponsor; to Mastro’s
Steakhouse who hosted the VIP Entrance Reception; to each of the generous Festival
sponsors; to the hundreds of volunteers who organized, set-up, cleaned-up, and so
much more; and especially to all the members of this year’s Wine, Food & Brew Festival
Committee who worked tirelessly to perfect every detail of this important, fun-filled,
fabulous food and wine tasting fundraising festival for Casa Pacifica and its children.
It was once again a wonderfully successful day in every way!

Angels Luncheon and Board Installation
he Casa Pacifica’s Angels enjoyed a fun afternoon at the May Social and installation of new Angels
Board members on May 8th at the Westlake Village Inn. In addition to a delicious luncheon and
visiting with a great group of women, the afternoon featured a special presentation by Frances Elson, a
lifetime Casa Pacifica Angel and talented fused glass artist. Fran has served on the Angels Board several
times over the years, including as its President as well as in other positions. She has also co-chaired the
Spotlight on Style Fashion Show and currently is a co-chair of the Yummies culinary competition at the
Wine, Food & Brew Festival each year.
Fran’s artwork is stunning to see and inevitably people ask her “How Do You Do That?” which also
happened to be the title of her presentation. Fran’s talk was, in her words, “an expression of my love
for this art medium and a description of some of the techniques I employ in creating my works.” One
of her amazing pieces of art, “Gemma,” a 24” x 18” sculpture of a beautiful woman, was donated by
Fran for an opportunity drawing during the luncheon. Her talk was fascinating and had
everyone captivated with her unique artistic vision and style.
It was a great day and Casa Pacifica is happy to welcome its new Angels Board for 2014-2015!

sculpture, titled “Gemma”.

Amigos News
The Amigos are 10 Years Old!
n April the Amigos celebrated’ the 10th
anniversary of their first event ever held
for the children – a fun-filled afternoon
called “Bulldog Day.” The Amigos was
the dream of Dennis Murphy who with
Tim New and a few of his other friends
wanted to start a group that would
provide fun activities for the kids to
enjoy, along with mentoring-style
support, while serving as positive adult
male role models for youth who had
very few such men in their lives. The
Amigos started with a few events each
year. Over time the activities became
guided by areas demonstrated to be
lacking in the children’s lives – skills they
might learn naturally if they were living
at home with their parents. So there
sprung up the annual “Lifeguard Day”
teaching water safety; and a car clinic
spawned from a youth asking where to
put gasoline in a car while pointing to
the engine during an Amigo classic car
show; and a bicycle clinic hosted by a
bicycle racer that taught how to fix a
bicycle chain and a flat tire; and many
others. The Amigos now hold more than
30 events each year – at least two
activities each month – offering a wide
range of activities from Pinewood Derby
Outdoor movie night
racing, hiking, and beach days to fishing,
bike rides, team building days, and
sports clinics (soccer, football, basketball)
to cheerleading camp, softball games,
kite flying, astronomy nights, and
outdoor movie nights. And each year the
Amigos head up the incredible Haunted
Maze at the Halloween Party.
The Amigos have expanded and grown
over the ten years to now include both
men and women. The group is an
integral part of Casa Pacifica’s fabric–
bringing its own unique, caring, and
joyful style to Casa Pacifica’s mission to
provide hope and help to the deserving
children Casa Pacifica serves. We are
endlessly grateful to Dennis Murphy, Tim
New, and to all the Amigos who have
made a tangible, direct difference in the
lives of our children and we thank them
for their unselfish dedication; their

was asked to help with Casa Pacifica’s network. He and his wife,
Kristin, fell in love with the organization and “have been hooked ever
since.” “We believe the agency serves one of the most important
needs in our community and we are proud to be associated with the
amazing people who carry out their mission everyday.” Kristin has
volunteered on campus and served on the Angels Board.

International Special Events Society and the American Rental Association.

covered more than $25,000 in expenses last year and our needs continue to grow.

If you have any questions about Team Archie, or if you
would like to join via phone, please call Vicki Murphy,
