In 1988, we began with three intensive, facility-based programs — Star View Adolescent Center, Oasis Rehabilitation Center, and Starlight Rehabilitation Center. We developed each program in partnership with Los Angeles, San Bernardino, and Santa Clara Counties to serve children, adolescents, and adults with serious emotional disorders in their respective communities.
In the early 1990's, we began offering an array of in-home and school-based services to support clients in transitioning from our facilities back into their communities. We now serve thousands of clients in community-based programs provided in homes, on school campuses and in partnership with other local agencies — including full service partnerships and other support services that are funded by the Mental Health Services Act.
Today we offer a full continuum of community- and facility-based programs, as well as special education in public and nonpublic schools. We deliver a complete array of therapeutic services — including outpatient, Day Treatment Intensive, and acute and subacute inpatient treatment — all of which are grounded in clinically sound, best practices. We provide our services through contracts with county mental health, child welfare, and juvenile justice departments, as well as with public school districts.
We employ more than 1,000 behavioral health workers including psychiatrists, psychologists and medical doctors, social workers, nurses, rehab therapists, counselors, teachers, aides, and a range of paraprofessional staff.
We help several thousand children and families each year.
We offer over 30 specialized public mental health programs and a wide array of community-based support services in the following counties:
Los Angeles County
San Bernardino County
Santa Clara County
