    Improving Our Ability to Heal

    This project will allow young people experiencing homelessness to receive individual and group therapy year-round from a consistent group of therapist interns. As a result, at least 50% of the young people served at our shelter will improve their social and emotional well-being and transition to stability, upward mobility, and sustainability. Their voices, experiences, and inherent strengths, enhanced by healing therapy, will be critical to L.A. County's efforts to be a better, more inclusive place to live by 2050!

    Affordable Housing and Equitable Living for Young Angelenos Previously Experiencing Homelessness

    Thriving communities depend on equity, inclusion, and the investment in the diverse people who live in them. Building the foundations of young people leaving homelessness and providing safe, affordable housing options is one of the most significant prevention strategies for reducing long-term and chronic homelessness. CHC's innovative youth- centered 12-Unit Affordable Housing Complex represents a vital step in ending youth homelessness and in reducing LA's poverty rate by 2050.

    Olive Tree Commons Affordable Youth Housing

    Youth who have worked so hard to move beyond homelessness and trauma deserve more than being thwarted by a housing market that is inaccessible. To develop skills, strengths, ideas, and opinions, only to have no place to exercise them is unjust. The Olive Tree Commons provides affordable housing for formerly homeless youth – a safe place from which to discover the excitement of their next transition. Featuring soft-touch, optional, accessible resident services, residents of the 16 units are free to set off on their journey as young adults.
