In Los Angeles, onsite programs include a custom-built, dormitory-style 90-day shelter and transitional living program, a medical and mental health clinic, and a community center that houses both day and street outreach programs, and education and employment skills program.

Through its trauma-informed approach, CHC provides these services to more than 1,800 transition age youth annually.
