As a local nonprofit organization, 211 San Diego is the region's trusted source for information and connections to community, health, and disaster resources. Help is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and in more than 200 languages. We maintain a database of more than 6,000 services and resources that are updated on a real-time basis, and our Community Connectors help connect San Diegans to the accurate information they need.
The San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) serves the region's most vulnerable students and supports school leaders, teachers, and students across the county.

Our goal is to ensure accountability for continuous student academic achievement at a high level for our more than 14,000 students from Transitional Kindergarten through 8th grade.
Settled in a long valley in the coastal mountains of Southern California, Escondido, which means "hidden" in Spanish, lies about 18 miles inland, 100 miles south of Los Angeles, and 30 miles northeast of San Diego. Surrounded by avocado and citrus groves, our award-winning City is a diverse, vibrant community with just the right mix of small-town friendliness and big-city buzz.
At Feeding San Diego, we strive to connect every person facing hunger in San Diego with healthy food. So, how can we achieve this goal? It's simple – through food rescue. More than 35% of food produced in the U.S. goes to waste every year. Feeding San Diego rescues high-quality, nutritious, surplus food from all types of food donors, such as farms and grocery stores. Then, we work with community partners who distribute the food to people in need.
