Surfers Healing Foundation is the original surf camp for children with autism; and they've been delivering magical moments to families since 1996.
What they offer seems simple: a day at the beach, and (hopefully!) a few good waves. But it's so much more than that.
They give parents a day in which their children are championed, cheered, and celebrated.
They give children a chance to know their own capability, to experience the joy of riding the waves.
They give families a chance to put aside the stress of daily life and enjoy these unique moments together. The moment he stands up on the board for the first time. The moment she reaches the shore and throws up her arms in victory. The moments we never knew we needed until they filled us up.
And Surfers Healing delivers this beautiful mission for free. They want families to enjoy a day at the beach, on them.

Monarch is a K-12 comprehensive school designed to educate homeless youth in San Diego, California.
There are more than 1.2 million homeless students across the country, and 23,000 in San Diego county alone. Research shows homelessness contributes to a wide range of challenges including physical and psychological problems, safety fears, and academic struggles. It’s estimated that 75% of homeless students do not receive a high school diploma. The barriers these students face hinder their ability to become contributing members of their families and society, and place them at a high risk of becoming tomorrow’s homeless adults. And Monarch gives students the skills and tools they need to overcome the odds.
