Since we first opened our doors in 1983, the central principle of the Weingart Center has been to offer the services people need to stabilize and get off the street in one location. To that end, we offer the following services, integrated by dedicated and well-trained staff:
Workforce Development -Poverty and homelessness are inextricably linked. Helping people increase their employability and secure stable jobs is a big part of what we do. Click here to learn more about Workforce Development.
Our Housing services offer housing in assigned bunks or rooms (60% of our beds are in single rooms!), with secure lockers for personal items. All of our shelter programs are 24-hour; our residents can stay or leave their belongings in their room all day and return to the same bed each night. Housing services also include meals at the Weingart Café, at no cost. Click here to learn more about Housing at The Weingart Center.
Our Clinical Services Department provides Weingart Center clients with Mental Health and Substance Abuse Treatment services, such as individual and group ther-apy sessions, focusing on issues such as trauma, domestic violence and substance abuse. Also offers a 16-week intensive outpatient alcohol and drug treatment program, based on the Matrix Model, as well as a 5-week program. Contact by phone at (213) 689-3086 or click here to learn more about Mental Health and Substance Abuse Treatment.
Getting and staying off the streets can be surprisingly complicated, so our clients are enrolled in Case Management services to help place them on the best available track. Our clients get connected to a Case Manager, who helps guide them through the process, maintaining a consistent point of contact throughout their journey.

In addition to the services listed above, the Weingart Center proudly offers recuperative care for individuals recently released from the hospital, HIV and AIDS assistance, and the Center for Community health. Click here to see a complete list of our additional services.
