“Building A Stronger Military Community”

Mission Statement:

The San Diego Military Family Collaborative supports and strengthens the military-connected community through education, advocacy, and engagement.

Our 2020 Vision:

SDMFC envisions a County where all members of San Diego’s military-connected community can easily gain access and navigate critical information, programs, and resources when faced with military life challenges through streamlined services and a network of support.

About the Collaborative:

More than anywhere else in the nation, active duty military, returning veterans and their families call San Diego home.

Local research confirms what San Diego Military Family Collaborative (SDMFC) organizations had heard regularly from families: “There are an overwhelming number of services out there….I have no idea where to start!” and “We have been here several years, I wish I would have known about these programs sooner!”

These stories, and many others like it are what inspired us to form the San Diego Military Family Collaborative to provide one coordinated place where military families can find resources and stay strong, healthy and connected.

From six organizations in 2010, the SDMFC grew by word of mouth and today comprises more than 400 representatives from over 200 unique public, private, faith-based, military, and governmental organizations. Social Advocates for Youth, San Diego provides fiscal oversight and staffing support.

Together as a community, in partnership with active duty, reservists, veterans, and their families, San Diego will give military men and women the just response deserving of their sacrifice and service.
