Foster kids are not orphans

Kids find themselves placed in foster care for a variety of reasons. While it’s true that the teens who come to Milestone House have been removed from their families, these kids are not orphans.

These kids are survivors of trauma.

All kids in foster care need nurturing homes that provide them with a safe place to process their feelings of grief, loss, and trauma; freedom to express who they are; and structure to support them in becoming responsible, healthy adults.

Milestone House has been operating out of the same house since 1992. We are located in a residential neighborhood in Oceanside. We have 3 bedrooms which are shared amongst 6 residents plus a granny flat and a pool. Milestone House is truly a home and a safe space for the residents who are lucky enough to get placed here.

We have 24-hour staff on site every day of the week, all year round. It takes a village of qualified, caring team members to meet the needs of our residents.

We work with foster programs throughout the state of California, often taking in residents from outside of San Diego when placement needs are in high demand.

At Milestone House we take pride in offering services beyond the stay of our residents. We offer an “after care” program which provides mental health therapy to any of the residents we’ve served.

You can help us make Milestone House a Home to the kids we serve.
