GIVE Join us in building futures for some of the most vulnerable children in our community.

Other Ways to Help

Our mission is to empower youth to reach their highest potential. At San Diego Youth Services, we provide safe places to live and long-term solutions through shelter, foster homes, community centers and housing.

You can support homeless, runaway, and other at-risk youth by giving time or resources.

Your help is appreciated!

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, unless we receive specific requests from our programs and youth. If so, needed items will be listed in this section.

We ask that you instead donate through our website or give a gift card so that our youth can directly purchase the items they need, including clothing, food and household items.

To donate gift cards, please contact Sophia at or at (619) 221-8600 x1235.
