Over 2,750 children and teens in San Diego have been taken from their home because of ongoing abuse and unspeakable neglect. Even after emotional and physical trauma, some children are resilient enough to be removed from this unhealthy environment and then thrive in a supportive foster home.
However, 20% of these children have been so traumatized that a loving and caring home is not enough. They need ongoing counseling, healthy structure and multiple role-models to treat the behavioral disorders they are experiencing, many times due to harmful environment and circumstances in their early years. We help these treatment-level foster children across the region through therapy, support and case management for them and their families.
