WHAT WE DO
SAY San Diego partnerships and services focus on strengthening the whole child, whole family, and whole community. Growing up and raising a family are complicated, even under the best of circumstances. SAY addresses the comprehensive needs of the entire family rather than focusing on one symptom or problem. SAY engages the community to work collaboratively and works with systems such as law enforcement, schools, and local government to affect positive change. SAY’s holistic approach enriches youth, empowers families, and engages communities.
SAY San Diego has been making a difference for children, families and communities for nearly 45 years. SAY first opened its doors in 1971 with one paid employee, a budget of $1,500, and the goal of providing prevention services to struggling youth. Since then SAY has evolved from a single focused organization to what we are today: an agency whose work encompasses more than 30 programs strengthening the whole child, whole family, and whole community.
