Mission

South Bay Community Services transforms communities to support the well-being and prosperity of children, youth, and families.

Notes from the Nonprofit

Our programs and services have been developed in response to the need in the community. Many of them began through our work with children and youth. Through their eyes, we saw a need in providing domestic violence services through a holistic approach - programs for the whole family, early education therapeutic programs, emergency housing for the entire family - and more.

We touch the lives of more than 50,000 annually and we now have more than 500 on staff - spanning a multitude of comprehensive services. Our staff are stationed throughout San Diego County to be there for families when they need it as well as support other partner agencies like schools, law enforcement and clinics to provide the most effective prevention and intervention services together.

We don't do this alone. We have a strong support network and donors in San Diego County. We are very appreciative for the generous support offered by so many so we can sustain, enhance and grow our programs.

What we aim to solve New!

The health and wealth of our community depend on the well-being and prosperity of all San Diegans; however, 16% of residents - and 1 in 5 children - live in poverty, struggling to provide basic food, shelter, and health services for their families. Through comprehensive and coordinated services and supports for children, youth, and families, such as housing assistance, independent living skills, employment readiness and financial literacy services, mental health counseling, domestic violence and child abuse intervention, juvenile crime prevention, and therapeutic educational programming, we assist all individuals and all communities to reach their fullest potential.

South Bay Community Services transforms communities to support the well-being and prosperity of children, youth, and families.

The health and wealth of our community depend on the well-being and prosperity of all San Diegans; however, 16% of residents - and 1 in 5 children - live in poverty, struggling to provide basic food, shelter, and health services for their families. Through comprehensive and coordinated services and supports for children, youth, and families, such as housing assistance, independent living skills, employment readiness and financial literacy services, mental health counseling, domestic violence and child abuse intervention, juvenile crime prevention, and therapeutic educational programming, we assist all individuals and all communities to reach their fullest potential.

Every day, our staff works with children, youth and families to provide the most responsive, trauma-centered and community-driven services countywide. With about 400 staff stationed throughout San Diego County at locations such as schools, police department, family resource centers and affordable housing locations – including our main location in the heart of the City of Chula Vista - and working collaboratively with many partners, we can reach our clients where they need us most.

SBCS has extensive experience collecting, analyzing and managing data. SBCS currently manages more than 60 separate City, State, Federal, and Foundation contracts, most of which involve collaborative arrangements to provide services and collect data to report statistics and findings. SBCS was the first major non-profit in the County to create an internal Contract Compliance and Quality Assurance Department (CCQA). This Department, led by SBCS’ Associate Director Dina Chavez, employs six CCQA Associates who collect, analyze, and use data for decision making, learning, accountability, and program feedback to continuously improve programs. SBCS is deeply committed to Results-Based Accountability, clearly articulating anticipated outcomes, and regularly collecting and analyzing data to assess whether the desired results have been achieved. SBCS uses evaluation results for contract compliance and accountability purposes, and also to track outcomes in real time to learn what is working.

A few outcomes: 98% of children ages 3 to 5 traumatized by family violence and child abuse showed developmental gains while attending Mi Escuelita. 94% of children and adolescents with serious mental health impairment showed improvement in their life after treatment in our children's mental health program. SBCS and its partners provide in-home services reaching 437 families involved with child welfare services as well as 2,140 military, teen, immigrant/refugee, and low-income families with in-home services through First Steps. 558 youth/families were served through our Alternative to Detention Program. 96% of youth had no new arrests within six months of closure. Youth in Transition provided housing and supportive services to 237 young adults/foster youth. 100% of residents went on to safe and stable housing. 80% of youth in our program for 12-months More than 300 first-generation college students enrolled in 2 & 4-year universities in with 90% retention rate.
