East Los Angeles
We are excited to announce that we have expanded our presence in East Los Angeles with the relocation to spacious, modern new offices. Our Bienvenidos Family Resource Center, East Los Angeles, serves some 500 clients and houses more than 50 therapists, social workers, and other staff.
Bienvenidos, an affiliate of Hillsides, has been in the East Los Angeles community for more than 30 years, but moved offices to consolidate services and gain more treatment rooms. The new location offers mental health services, school-based services, a family preservation program to keep families together, and wraparound services that provide team-based support for children with mental health needs.
Project SAFE-LA, an HIV, Hepatitis C, and substance abuse prevention program for youth ages 13 – 24 who live in East Los Angeles, is also housed at the location. In the future, the office will enhance its services to transition-aged youth ages 16 – 25.
We recently held an Open House to introduce the new location to the community. Some 80 guests attended, including representatives from the office of Los Angeles County Supervisor Hilda Solis. We look forward to a continued collaboration with the East Los Angeles community.
