Family support & child welfare

Included under Hope Street’s umbrella of services is our Child Welfare and Behavioral Health programming. Through partnerships with LA County’s Departments of Children and Family Services and Mental Health, these services are intended to support some of the communities’ most vulnerable families, focusing on their mental health and well-being. Together, Hope Street’s Child Welfare and Behavioral Health programming serves nearly 400 clients annually. This programming is also nested within Hope Street’s comprehensive wraparound health care, mental health, child welfare, parenting, and social services that support the whole family from birth to adulthood.
