HOW WE MAKE IT HAPPEN
The Children’s Initiative was founded in 1992 when five San Diego based foundations and more than 40 community and public leaders came together to form an organization that establishes innovative community solutions on behalf of our most vulnerable children and youth. The mission of the Children’s Initiative is to help San Diego’s low-income children, youth and families thrive and prosper.
The Children’s Initiative’s projects are created in response to the community’s needs by continually identifying trends in the health, safety, and education of San Diego’s children through community input and current data. The Children’s Initiative convenes diverse organizations and stakeholders, brokers creative partnerships, and leverages millions of dollars in public and private resources to ensure that relevant and high-quality programing is delivered.
