Welcome to HOME START
is for every child to have a
safe, stable, and nurturing home
Guided by our mission to promote the safety and nurturance of children by fostering healthy families and communities, Home Start, Inc., a non-profit child abuse prevention and treatment agency, has strengthened and developed San Diego’s families, communities and systems of care since 1972.
To effectively prevent and treat child abuse, Home Start, Inc. addresses the conditions that put children in risky or abusive situations – poverty, unsafe neighborhoods, lack of affordable housing and unemployment while currently addressing individual self-sufficiency and emotional needs.
