GIVE You can help save a young person's life.

Join us in building futures.

We help some of the most vulnerable children and young adults in our community, including former foster youth, children who have been abused by their parents, teenagers forced into human trafficking, or youth experiencing homelessness.

We provide safety, shelter and support, including case management, mental health services and on the job training. We work with them to stabilize their crisis situation and help them become self-sufficient. We provide a hope for a better tomorrow and continue to be here for youth in need, thanks to our generous community.

Please help some of San Diego’s most vulnerable youth.

Donated Items

We are grateful for your support and commitment to the children and young adults we serve. However, we are no longer able to accept new or used donated items. We instead ask that you donate through our website or give a gift card that empowers our youth to make their own choices and directly purchase the items they need, including clothing, food and household items.
