San Diego/Camp Pendleton Chapter

Welcome to Blue Star Families of San Diego!

As your San Diego Chapter Director, my goal is to be here for you.

Through partnering with local organizations, creating engaging programs, and sharing unique opportunities, I hope to help you and your family gain a sense of belonging to our community. Whether you are here for a short while or for longer, I invite you to be part of our adventures and special events.

Follow our Facebook page to stay up-to-date on our Chapter’s latest activities, and share your stories, too.

Together, we are creating a San Diego that supports and celebrates military and Veteran families.

Until we meet in person, send me an email and let me know what I can do for you.

Campaign for Inclusion

All Blue Star Families programming is informed by our research. For this reason, research and advocacy is a key pillar of our Campaign for Inclusion. While all Blue Star Families research in the future will continue to look at data through a racial equity and inclusion lens, our groundbreaking studyThe Diverse Experiences of Military and Veteran Families of Color provides unparalleled insight into how military families experience military life.

Get Settled and Connected
