Kids’ Turn San Diego changes family relationships in positive ways so children experiencing family separations have happier childhoods and brighter futures!
“In the car last week, I told my daddy that I wished more than anything in the world for him and my mommy to come to my school play together. I couldn’t believe it! When I walked out on the stage, I saw them . . . sitting next to each other in the front row! I couldn’t help it . . . I just kept on smiling!”

“Thanks to this program, I figured out a way to tell my mom and dad that I really
wanted them both to be at my baseball games, like all my friends’ parents. They
both came to my game last Saturday for the first time since they got divorced two
years ago! My friends even noticed and it was awesome! Oh and I hit a double!”

“I have lived through lots of deployments when my dad was gone for months and
months, but now my parents are divorced and it’s really different. This program
helped me talk with my parents, and they listened! Now they understand why I
was struggling so much. I’m feeling much better about myself, them and life.
