In June 2012, Casa de Amparo celebrated the official opening of the Casa Kids Campus in San Marcos, CA. The San Diego Chargers also dedicated Casa de Amparo at that time as the San Diego Chargers Courage House, part of the Ed Block Foundation's national NFL network of Courage Houses, nonprofit organizations who partner with their local NFL teams in working toward the goal of child abuse prevention.
Casa Kids in Residential Services (formerly the Children's Shelter) moved from the San Luis Rey Mission location in Oceanside to the new campus and are enjoying their cozy rooms and home-like environment in brand new California-style cottages on campus surrounded by walking trails, playing fields, BBQ area, Basketball Court and garden where they are growing their own fruits and vegetables.
All buildings on the campus are compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). In addition to those who are able-bodied, Casa de Amparo serves abused or neglected children with special health care needs. The campus is Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified by The U.S. Green Building Council.
