GIVE Make the holidays brighter for vulnerable youth.

We are grateful for your support and commitment to the children and young adults we serve!

We are most in need of gift cards. Our youth love receiving gift cards so that they can directly purchase the essential items they need.

Many of the youth we help arrive with nothing but the clothes they wear, and receiving a gift card empowers them to make their own choices and buy their essentials, including:

  • warm clothing
  • food
  • gasoline
  • hygiene items
  • laundry soap
  • household items
  • other essentials

We accept both physical and e-cards.


How to Give

Physical gift cards: send to our Point Loma Campus at 3255 Wing Street, San Diego, CA 92110 or drop off M-F, 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m.

E-Cards: Please email e-cards to

Note: Unfortunately, we are no longer able to accept new or used donated items.

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.
