Home Start promotes the safety and nurturance of children by fostering healthy families and communities.

Home Start is a San Diego County-based, private non-profit agency whose mission is to promote the safety and nurturing of children by fostering healthy families and communities. Since 1972, Home Start has delivered timely child abuse prevention and treatment services through home visitation and worked in collaboration with local schools, NGOs, government agencies and business partners to create safer communities. Home Start addresses conditions such as poverty, family violence, juvenile delinquency, mental illness, substance abuse, unsafe neighborhoods, lack of affordable housing and unemployment, i.e. the situations that place children at risk within unstable environments.
