Working on the inside.
Homeless Health Care Los Angeles is 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 and having an actual door for them to walk through, we are able to offer a more comprehensive and action-oriented set of health services that improves their quality of life.

Harm reduction is a set of strategies aimed at reducing negative consequences associated with drug use. It is about lowering barriers to well-being, and placing each individual’s quality of life before judgment of their behavior. Some of the tools and interventions that are utilized at our Center for Harm Reduction are syringe exchange and opiate overdose education/naloxone distribution.
