    Homelessness Prevention: Exercise Your Rights!

    MHAS’ Homelessness Prevention: Exercise Your Rights! initiative provides 1:1 legal services and know your rights trainings for low-income Angelenos with mental health disabilities. We help them understand their legal rights, access benefits, clear court records, resolve credit issues, receive mental health care, and fight discrimination. Removing barriers to economic and personal wellbeing improves housing security for individuals with mental health disabilities, including high-risk populations such as older adults and transition-age youth.
