Who We Are

Promising Futures, Inc (PFI) is a non-profit organization committed to quality care for the developmentally disabled population of San Diego, CA. PFI was founded in 1989 by parents who believed quality residential and day program services should be available to all families.  

Steven absolutely loves dance class, and I am so glad he has this opportunity... I also want to thank you for having such a wonderful program, he tells me about the things he does during the day and the people he sees, he loves your staff.
