WHO WE ARE:
Founded in 1985, HHCLA has helped more than 190,000 of the most marginalized and impoverished individuals and their families in Los Angeles through medical, behavioral health and quality of life services.
HOW WE HELP:
We are not your average non-profit. Our approach to securing permanent supportive housing for our clients means we must help them with both their physical health and mental health conditions.
In our opinion, there is no other way to make a real difference in someone’s life. By working on a day-to-day, person-to-person level with our clients, we are able to offer a more comprehensive and action-oriented set of health services that improves their quality of life.
Delivering behavioral health and housing is how we tackle the pressing problems that people experiencing homelessness face every day. It begins with our Center for Harm Reduction in Downtown Los Angeles, on Skid Row. Our facility is involved in taking immediate first steps to provide substance use treatment and prevention.
Treatment becomes more personal from there, addressing co-occurring disorders. Approximately 8.9 million adults in the U.S. are dealing with both mental health and substance use disorders, yet only 7.4% receive treatment for both. And 55.8% receive no treatment at all. HHCLA treats both and treats them on an ongoing basis. This is necessary as HHCLA additionally works with individuals to connect them to permanent housing options.
