Program: San Mar has been "Cultivating Hope and Well-Being in Children, Families, and Communities" for over 140 years.

The San Mar vision is that children are safe and nurtured, families are strong and resilient, and communities are connected and thriving so that achieving dreams is possible. Elisa Mabina, Director of Development, will talk about how San Mar has been making that vision a reality by providing human services to children and families for over 140 years!

Known as an orphanage for the first 130 years, the strategy has shifted over the past decade, to support children earlier, before major trauma occurred, with a variety of more upstream and proactive efforts in mental health and community-based services for families in need. San Mar serves over 1000 individuals annually through their diverse programs.

Recently the San Mar board took the next significant step to impact a major social problem by launching a new housing initiative that addresses the special needs of youth aging out of systems of care by repurposing the campus facilities to provide a Full-Service Housing for Transition Age Youth program. Mabina will talk about the goal of this program.


Continental Breakfast will be served.
