The A.B. and Jessie Polinsky Children's Center is a 24-hour temporary shelter care facility for children who must be separated from their families for their own safety, or when parents can not provide care. Each month more than 100 children ages birth to 18 years old are admitted to the Polinsky Children's Center.

The A.B. and Jessie Polinsky Children's Center is located at 9400 Ruffin Court, San Diego, California 92123, 858-514-4600. Built on County donated land and augmented with funds raised from private donations under the auspices of the Promises2Kids (founded as the Child Abuse Prevention Foundation), the new facility has the licensed capacity to serve 204 children. It includes six residential cottages, a nursery, an on-site school library, infirmary, and gymnasium.
