Break the Cycle of Child Abuse and Neglect.jpg

San Diego Youth Services has long been a safe haven for children who are victims of abuse/neglect and do not have a safe home to live. Foster homes, group homes and support services are provided for youth to assist them in overcoming the trauma of being abused and displaced focusing on positive life changes and forming healthy relationships. Adoptions support services are offered to those families considering adopting a youth in the foster care system.
