The San Diego Center for Children’s Successful Transitions Program

The San Diego Center for Children received $12,500 from Bank of America for its Successful Transitions Program. The award will benefit youth ages 15 to 21, struggling with mental health issues and emotional and behavioral disorders during a tough, transitional age. The San Diego Center for Children is San Diego's oldest nonprofit focusing on kids, and provides education and therapeutic care for more than 1,000 children and families.
