Childcare during firesMay. 15th

We hope all of our followers are safe and out of harms way. San Diego is fighting fires and this can cause much stress and displacement for many. We heard about what the YMCA is doing for families affected by the fires and we needed to share. Please read and call a branch near you. Stay safe and talk to your kids about what is happening. Here are some helpful sites and articles:
