Family service organization relocates
Interface Children and Family Services has announced its relocation in early 2013 to the Ventura County Community Foundation nonprofit center building at 4001 Mission Oaks Blvd.
Approximately 13,000 square feet of space will be leased from VCCF to house about 70 employees from Interface’s administration, domestic violence, strategies and mental health staff, as well as the 211 call center.
Erik Sternad, executive director of Interface, along with some of its board leaders including Ron Polito, a partner at Don Carlton Realty, started making relocation plans nine months ago due to the expiration next May of the lease at 1305 Del Norte Road.
The move will take place during the agency’s 40th year of service.
Founded in 1973, Interface serves about 26,000 county residents annually. Interface staff works to prevent and heal the effects of child abuse, neglect and abandonment; domestic violence; family conflict; and mental health issues.
