    The PADRE Foundation was founded in 1985 as a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization designed to support the needs of Southern California children and adolescents who have diabetes, and their families, through a program of diabetes health EDUCATION, support groups and events. Today, PADRE serves more than 2,400 pediatric patients annually throughout the greater Southern California area. As an independent non-profit organization, PADRE is dedicated to serving the community through its free diabetes self-care and SUPPORT programs. These programs are designed to improve diabetes self-management which positively affects the health outcomes of youth participants, and teaches valuable coping skills which ultimately strengthen the family function.
