Celebrating 50 Years Building futures for San Diego's youth

It's our 50th anniversary!

Since our founding in 1970 as one of the nation's first shelters for homeless youth, San Diego Youth Services has helped 797,000 homeless, runaway and other vulnerable youth.

Thanks to community members like you, we have grown so much during the past 50 years, and now serve more than 17,000 youth from infancy to age 25 at more than 100 community locations annually.

This year we're going big! Take a look below at how far we've come and how you can join us in building futures for another 50 years.
