We take pride in reducing barriers to of accessibility of social services through our robust outreach teams and numerous access points throughout SPA 6.
Street-Based Outreach and Engagement
HOPICS’ Multi-Disciplinary Teams bring mental health, substance use disorder, medical, and case management services to those currently experiencing homelessness in the South Los Angeles, Compton, Lynwood, and Paramount areas. They connect those most vulnerable to needed services deliver the same services an individual or family would receive if they came into one of our offices for support. If you or someone you know is currently experiencing homelessness in Los Angeles County use LA-HOP.org to send an outreach team out to them and connect them to services.
