Family Focus

The San Diego Center for Children has been known as a reputable community leader of caring for children and strengthening families since our founding in 1887.  We know children do best when supported by strong and healthy families, and even strong families need support during difficult times.

Families come in many forms – large, small, biological, adoptive, extended, divided, blended, fostering, and reuniting. Families come to us for many reasons. Some families wish to build stronger relationships or develop better parenting skills, or to help a child who is experiencing behavioral or emotional challenges. Many turn to us during their most difficult personal life challenges.  We are here to be your advocate and provide services that will instill hope and faith of a more positive future.
