About Us

Who We Are

San Diego Youth Services is a nationally recognized, non-profit organization that has helped improve the lives of more than 700,000 homeless, runaway, abused and at-risk youth and their families. Founded in 1970 as one of the nation’s first shelters for homeless youth, we now provide services to more than 22,000 children and their families each year at 80 locations throughout San Diego County.

Our mission is to help at-risk youth and their families become self-sufficient and reach their highest potential. Every day, we work to fight the tragedies of homeless youth and youth in crisis.

We can help.
