Healthy Living Program for Homeless Individuals
34% of homeless individuals in Los Angeles County experience lifestyle disorders. Skid Row, where one in three residents are homeless, is one of the most densely-populated areas of people experiencing homelessness. Our Healthy Living Program not only helps reduce the condition of homelessness in Downtown Los Angeles, it improves the quality of life for anyone who comes through our doors.
The Midnight has been serving individuals in Los Angeles Skid Row area for a century. What we have learned over this long history is that repairing the lives of formerly-homeless individuals is really about recreating their safety net. The safety net is a network that we as members of society access every day—not only legal and medical care, but friends and family who we can rely on for problems large and small. People experiencing homelessness and suffering from lifestyle disorders that keep them out of society need The Midnight to help them rebuild that safety net, which can include connections to career resources, mental health professionals and housing opportunities. The goal is a self-sufficient, secure, and successful future.
Our Healthy Living Program has been designed from industry-wide best practices and progressive thinking. With strong educational, vocational, legal and health & wellness resources; our customized program gives each person the tools for becoming self-sufficient.
