A number of us bloggers were invited to tour the Polinsky Center also known as Promises 2 Kids. It was a really extremely moving and emotional day.
Originally founded as the Child Abuse Prevention Foundation of San Diego County, Promises2Kids is a 29-year-old nonprofit organization. Since 1981, Promises2Kids, also known as the Polinsky Children’s Center Foundation, has led the fight against child abuse and neglect in the County of San Diego. No other organization in the area offers such a broad array of support systems, nor does any other organization in the area offer such a wealth of opportunity to connect with a wide variety of resources, programs, and collaborative partners focused on eliminating child abuse. It also needs to be mentioned that the Polinsky Center runs strictly on donations!
Walking into the toddler section was especially hard. It looks like every other beautiful preschool, but these babies don’t go home at the end of the day. I still get upset thinking about it , so I’m going to quickly move on to tell you how you can help!
