by | Nov 25, 2019 | Spotlight

Life is unpredictable. This amazing rollercoaster we are on can have us up one minute and low the next riddled with unexpected twists and turns that can be a bit much to handle at times. When this happens, what do you do? Where do you go for answers? In the Santa Clarita Valley, we are so fortunate to have several organizations that can help us get back on track and enjoy the ride. Let these professionals be a guiding light when times get tough. Or, if you want to be a part of something greater than yourself, join them in their mission to give back to our community. Some of these organizations also serve men, children and families.

Most significantly, we recently navigated two mergers enabling us to leverage resources and more efficiently and effectively provide mental health, substance use, and domestic violence services. This all sets the stage for our strategic plan that is framed with four aims in mind: better care. Smarter spending. Healthier people. Joy in work.
