There are over 300 orphanages and treatment facilities in Tijuana with little help actually coming from the government of Mexico. Frank decided he wanted to make a difference in the lives of these children. "There is nothing more noble than helping those that have never had what many of us have," Frank tells Giving Back Magazine.

A Bright Future for all San Diegans

What does it take to be financially self-sufficient in San Diego? A third of our residents don't have it. They struggle to make ends meet, even working multiple jobs. United Way addressed this issue in a recent report, Voices for the Common Good: San Diego Speaks Out on Opportunity, listening to the challenges of those who are "working hard but falling short."

The good news: We're engaging the entire community to help move more residents toward economic stability. You can volunteer to coach youth and adults on job skills—such as resume writing, interviewing and other soft skills—by participating in our mock interviews, part of our Bright Futures initiative. Your support can help San Diegans of all ages learn the skills they need to be successful.
