Elliot Feuerstein is an experienced commercial real estate developer and construction professional who serves as an officer of Mira Mesa Shopping Center in San Diego, CA. Involved in community development, Elliot Feuerstein supports the United Way of San Diego (UWSD).

In March 2019, UWSD announced that its Count Me 2020 census outreach has received $1.66 million in funding from the California State Census Office. UWSD is leading an effort of over 100 community groups to provide an accurate census count for San Diego County and Imperial County, which historically have been difficult areas to accurately count.

Community stakeholders in both counties will work with UWSD and its partner organizations to reach hard-to-count populations. Accurate counts are vital to ensure adequate representation in Congress and coordinate the flow of government dollars for community-based programs. To learn more about the initiative, visit

Youth Programming at the Barnes Tennis Center in San Diego

For more than 45 years, Elliot Feuerstein of San Diego, CA, has functioned as a real estate developer and officer of Mira Mesa Shopping Center in Mira Mesa, CA. During this time, Elliot Feuerstein has been heavily involved in philanthropic work throughout the San Diego region, including serving on the committee that developed and raised funds for the Barnes Tennis Center for children.

The Barnes Tennis Center is operated by Youth Tennis San Diego, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that uses tennis and educational activities to facilitate personal, physical, and social growth in children. The Barnes Tennis Center offers a number of community programs geared toward younger players, including both recreational players and those who demonstrate more advanced skills in the sport. 

For example, the Junior Aces program is available to children 3 to 5 years of age with no tennis experience. Three Rising Stars programs, ranging from age 4 to 13, continue to build on the Junior Aces program by focusing on general stroke production and healthy lifestyle habits. The Competitive Younger program for children 8 to 11, meanwhile, is better suited to children who have demonstrated passion and aptitude for the sport. Competitive programming goes up to age 18.

The Barnes Tennis Center also maintains High Performance programming for more advanced players, as well as an invitation only program, Elite Training. More information regarding what program is best for your child can be found at
