"A Safe Harbor From A Restless Sea"
New Entra Casa is a Perinatal Program and accredited Drug Medi-Cal Residential 3.5 and 3.1 facility, licensed and certified by the State of California, Department of Health Care Services.
New Entra Casa was founded in 1972 by the Wesleyan Service Guide, a group of business and professional women in the United Methodist Church. An anonymous donation in the amount of $3,000 made it possible to rent a house on Mt. Ararat Drive and to open the doors for women being released from prison. Nuestra Casa was developed. However, adjustments were still being made and in I973, the location changed to Glacier Dr. in the Grantland Area of San Diego. This would not be the permanent home of New Entra Casa.
In 1974, the location changed to Front Street and the name New Entra Casa was created. A Board of Directors was created as well as The Associates, both playing vital roles in the maintenance and running of the house. It was in 1981 that New Entra Casa became incorporated.
In 1988, New Entra Casa received donations from two benefactresses, Mrs. Anne McAdams and Mrs. Joan Kroc which allowed for the purchase outright of the property to which we currently operate on Pershing Avenue in North Park.
In 2019, New Entra Casa joined forces with San Diego Drug Medi-Cal to become a perinatal program. We currently operate as a 6 bed female facility for women that are CWS involved and/or have limited visitation with their children. Our goal is to provide the education and the support for these women to reunify with their children and to have the ability to be a part of their children’s lives.
With a deep understanding of the disease of addiction, New Entra Casa is committed to helping individuals recover from substance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorders. We offer individual counseling in addition to groups that combine evidence based, 12-Step and holistic therapy models to address the underlying causes of addiction and trauma. Our goal is to educate and promote growth and allow for the healing to begin at every level including your mind, spirit, and body.
