San Diego

Welcome to Blue Star Families San Diego. We are so glad you found us!

As home to the nation’s largest concentration of military personnel, San Diego is a great place to be, but can also be overwhelming. The Blue Star Families San Diego Community provides military families with a way to meet their neighbors and get to know the community through unique events, volunteer opportunities, and Blue Star Families programs. We work to build an ecosystem of meaningful relationships within the community for military families to plug into as soon as they arrive. By working together with local command leadership, government officials, service organizations, businesses, and civilian neighbors we can ensure military families in the San Diego community thrive.

Please look around and let us know how you would like to become involved in the Blue Star Families San Diego community. We look forward to working with you!
