Casa Pacifica, Camarillo, CA, USA - 2 postdoctoral fellowship positions

Casa Pacifica provides hope and help for abused, neglected or at-risk youth and their families. We believe children of all ages are capable of great achievement, a notion reflected in our programs. Our programs protect, engage and teach children and their families how to develop the competence and confidence they need to manage their own lives and achieve great potential.  We meet kids and families at the most challenging times of their lives and help them overcome some of life’s most difficult circumstances – abuse and neglect, complex emotional and behavioral issues, family crises. We restore hope, help children find joy in daily living, and improve families’ chances at making a better life for themselves and at finding a place in their community where they can be successful. Casa Pacifica is committed to children unconditionally over time and through all of life’s ups and downs.
