Dear SHIELDS Clients and Community Members,
We regret to inform you that as of February 28, 2018, SHIELDS’ Exodus Family-Centered Treatment Program at Keith Village is closed.
SHIELDS remains committed to providing comprehensive, collaborative substance abuse treatment programs in South Los Angeles through our Mt. Carmel, Genesis, Ark, and Revelation programs. If you are currently attending Exodus, our support staff will help make sure you make a smooth transition into one of these programs, or into one operated by another provider. If you are also currently enrolled in other SHIELDS programs, such as mental health, educational and vocational, and child welfare services, you will continue to receive services at those programs without interruption.
Furthermore, in order to ensure you obtain housing that meets you and your family’s needs, we will team up with local landlords and community-based agencies to provide linkage to resources, locator services, and housing resource fairs. You may be eligible to receive services through our Homeless Family Solution Services (HFSS) program and affiliate agencies. A multidisciplinary team of SHIELDS staff will work with you on-site until all of your housing and treatment needs are met.
Whether you are an existing participant or someone interested in attending our programs for the first time, the SHIELDS family will always have a place for you. If you are interested in attending one of SHIELDS’ comprehensive, award-winning programs, please don’t hesitate to call us at (323) 242-5000.
