What to Expect

When you come to Palomar, you can expect a welcome, comfortable, and safe environment. We are here to serve you.

You Have Choices

Everyone who visits has the option to sit down one-on-one with a Client Navigator who will serve as your guide to connecting you with the help you need from various community agencies. Palomar abides by all confidentiality laws and requirements. You decide how your information is shared.

Children's Sanctuary

The Children’s Sanctuary is  available to children of all ages. You are welcomed to seek  wraparound services for you and  your child, knowing they will be safe and well cared for by specially trained Children Navigators while on-site at Palomar.

Safety Assessment

You are always welcomed at Palomar and your protection is our top priority. When you come to Palomar, you will be surrounded with resources to develop a customized safety plan to best meet your needs.  You will be asked to complete an intake form assessment that will give staff a better insight of your current situation. We want to empower you with resources and provide support to help you find your way.
