Mission Statement

SAY’s mission is to partner with children, families, and communities to overcome barriers and create opportunities that enable them to realize and sustain their full potential.

Description

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.

Core Services
  • Before and after school programs and preschools
  • Juvenile delinquency prevention and diversion
  • Child abuse prevention and family support
  • Mental health counseling, case management, and youth development
  • Access to health care, employment, and self-sufficiency
  • Collaborative partnerships for military families, refugee families, and more
  • Alcohol, tobacco, and substance abuse prevention

It was my first volunteer experience and I can already tell SAY is a very serious and well-organized institution. They made us feel comfortable as well as made sure to use our skills to help as much as needed. Cannot wait to help again!

I volunteered as a driver for the Back to School drive. I was very impressed with how organized they were and the efficient way they used all volunteers' time. They were welcoming and appreciative. They made sure to let me know that my efforts would help make a difference in the lives of San Diego youth.
