Partnering with the greater San Diego community, we assure that children and their families receive unique and innovative services for healing, for stopping child mistreatment of any kind, and for ending generational cycles of abuse. The result is a community where child abuse and neglect are not tolerated, and where child abuse awareness and prevention are priorities.
Casa de Amparo has a highly developed system of Board governance, infrastructure and policy, new programs and funding sources, and donor development, the result of an extensive, multi-step strategic planning process that was initiated in May 2005.
Casa de Amparo has clear and specific goals for both the organization and each individual program, all focused on our mission of supporting those affected by and at risk of child abuse and neglect through a range of programs and services that promote healing, growth and healthy relationships.
Within the embrace of overall organizational goals, each program has its own unique objectives. Objectives and program activities are implemented within an educational framework, using every activity as a ‘teaching” or “exposure” opportunity, i.e. developing motor skills, learning interpersonal or coping skills, being exposed to diverse people, occupations, leisure activities and arts and culture. In this way we help children to know what their potential is and to heal, grow and create the future.
Casa de Amparo’s strategic planning process has resulted in remarkable growth of name recognition, program addition and expansion, increased government contract and contribution revenue for both program delivery and capital construction.

Of great significance, Phase I of a $16 million capital construction project was completed In October 2007. The new facilities have greatly improved the environment for the programs provided at the new site and enhanced the quality of care.
