From the Director

Welcome to the new San Diego Oasis!

Throughout San Diego County, we are continuing to embrace new members, new donors, new staff and new relationships. It’s been a time of tremendous positive change as we opened our doors at our Grossmont Center headquarters in La Mesa.

For the first time ever, our members are enjoying windows with lots of natural light, as well as excellent parking, public transportation options and a variety of shopping and entertainment options.

We can't wait for you to visit!

Warm wishes,
Simona Valanciute
President & CEO
