Fast Facts

1%   8%   17%   30%

While less than 1% of the national population lives in San Diego County, nearly 8% of the U.S. active duty military population resides here, as do 17% of all Navy personnel and 30% of all Marine personnel (Nash, 2010).

60,000

In San Diego alone, there are over 60,000 military-connected children (Military Child Education Center, 2010).

1990

This network originally formed in the early 1990s as the “Murphy Canyon Community Collaborative” to coordinate services for military families by Social Advocates for Youth (SAY) San Diego. Following an Annual Conference held by Armed Services YMCA in 2010, SDMFC took shape and the rest is history…

50

The Collaborative meets monthly and on average, 50 representatives from various organizations come together to share resources and collaborate on programs.
