Founded in 1970, the San Fernando Valley Community Mental Health Center, Inc. strives to improve the mental health of individuals and families. As part of its commitment to treating all people with dignity and helping enhance their quality of life, the center provides services to people of all ages with severe emotional disorders and mental illness, from infants to older adults.
The center's Cornerstone program serves individuals aged 26–59 experiencing mental-health issues and homelessness. Participants in the program can work with a case manager and nurses, plan for shelter and housing, and socialize with their peers. Alternatively, they can simply access showers, lockers, and laundry facilities and receive snacks and meals.
