At this time, Pacific Center is extending our closure date through October 5, 2020. This is in a continued effort to reduce the risk of exposure and keep our community safe.

While our building remains closed and all in person on-site and off-site meetings have been canceled, Pacific Center has transitioned most of our services to an online format. We are now providing video/teleconferencing for therapy sessions, peer group meetings and therapy groups.

Pacific Center is almost entirely volunteer-driven, with a supporting crew of eight part-time staff members.
