An Important Message from Pacific Quest
It is with deep sadness that we announce the suspension of services at Pacific Quest. After heartfelt consideration, we concluded that during this international public health emergency we needed to take our social responsibility seriously.
Due to the nature of our work, we cannot abstain from contact with our clients and colleagues. After evaluating all options, we concluded that suspending operations was the healthiest, safest and right thing to do. We are thankful to have successfully suspended operations with no cases of COVID-19 in our population. Our ultimate goal is to continue our incredible work after this crisis has subsided.
The Pacific Quest Ohana is proud and grateful to have served just under 3,000 families over the past 16 years! We are forever grateful to our dedicated employees who we are lucky to call friends and family, and to the thousands of families that trusted us with their children. We deeply regret this turn of events and are grateful for your support.
We wish everyone health, safety and connection in the coming year.
