With rates of recidivism as high as 70% in some parts of Los Angeles, Project 180 is turning lives around through comprehensive diversion and re-entry programs for Angelenos involved in the criminal justice system. Providing a “one stop shop” approach, Project 180 provides the services needed to address the complex and deep-rooted issues that have placed, and keep, people in the criminal justice system.
With practical solutions, tailor-made programs, and compassionate care, Project 180 keeps people out of the system and in their communities.
The foundation for all our work is the individual connections we make with each person that comes to Project 180. We believe that every individual has the capacity for personal transformation, and we facilitate our clients’ process of change through relationships that are built on respect, trust and authenticity. We give people the tools they need to remake, reclaim and restart their lives in ways many never thought was possible.
We are as innovative as we are compassionate. We constantly strive to be on the cutting edge of behavioral health treatment, delivering services that are evidence-based and take a holistic approach to client care. Our vibrant Alumni Association meets regularly and serves as a living example of the power of our programs and our commitment to creating a sense of community for those we serve.
Our interdisciplinary team of behavioral health professionals, provide a wide-range of services which include: intensive case management, individual and group behavior modification, therapy and substance abuse counseling, pet assisted therapy, peer mentoring, benefits support, family reunification, supportive employment, housing navigation, and psychiatric medication support.
