Description: The program provides a drop-in center for homeless mentally ill adults who are primarily in the Skid Row area of downtown Los Angeles. The center provides homeless support services for people who have a chronic mental illness, including people who have developmental disabilities or a dual diagnosis of substance abuse and mental illness.

Services include art therapy for people with mental illness, case management, clothing, drug abuse counseling, drug dependency support groups, housing, laundry, meals, personal toiletries, showers, specialized information and referral, telephone access and welfare rights assistance.

The program does not serve families or people whose primary problems are homelessness or substance abuse. People may visit the center as often as they like if they abide by the rules which prohibit violence and weapons. The Art Project site provides a space for people with a chronic mental illness to drop in and create art in an art studio setting. There are no geographic restrictions.

Monday through Friday, 7:30am to 11:30am and 12:30pm to 5:30pm; Saturday and Sunday, 7:30am to 11:30am and 12:30pm to 2:30pm.

Walk in for information or to apply for service.
