RESPECT Program's NEW San Marcos Office Helps Furthers Youth Services

RESPECT Program's NEW San Marcos Office Helps Further Youth Services

RESPECT program’s new San Marcos center in partnership with San Diego County Sheriff’s Department provides mentorship and personal development for 45 kids through a three-month program each year in North County. RESPECT stands for responsibility, ethics, service, perseverance, education, courage, and trustworthiness. Our very own Lifeline Family Case Worker, Lizbeth Lopez, shares her experience and excitement over the new facility,

"Partnering with the RESPECT Project and working alongside Deputy Baker and Nelson has been very rewarding. Being able to fulfill the need of the youth and families is the reward. As the Family Case Worker at RP building, I’m able to provide and connect the youth and there families with resources in the community to help achieve their goals some of the resources include Food, Rental Assistance, Medical and more. Not only do the youth go through the program but the family as well providing weekly Parent Support groups and providing workshops about trending topics in the community. Now that RP has their own building we will be able to host family outings such as movie night, game night, and more. It has been a pleasure and rewarding being able to partner up with the RESPECT Project team to help families in the City of San Marcos and surrounding city’s."
