Casa de Amparo opens new Casa Kids Campus in San Marcos


Child Abuse Prevention leader Casa de Amparo held a Grand Opening Ceremony June 8 for the organization’s new Casa Kids Campus in the Twin Oaks Valley area of San Marcos.

“It took 14 years to reach this point,” said Master of Ceremonies and Board President Mark Allyn in addressing the group of over 400 guests, “But seeing it today, I think you can all agree it was worth it!”

The Casa Kids Campus will enable Casa de Amparo to expand and enhance programs and services to meeting evolving needs in child abuse treatment and prevention in the San Diego community. The $14 million, 11.4-acre campus began construction in December, 2010.

“We are deeply grateful for the tremendous outpouring of community support that has made it possible to reach this point,” said Sharon Delphenich, executive director. “Our goal is to raise a final $2.7 million to make the campus debt-free in order to devote maximum resources to programs that directly assist children suffering from or at-risk of abuse or neglect as well as programs to build healthy family relationships.”
