Review for SHIELDS for Families, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Shields for Families is the best agency I have been associated with in my 16 yrs. of working in the Substance Abuse/Mental Health field. It is the only agency I know of that offers wrap around services to the entire family, and will assist women with children, no matter the age of the children and the number of children the individual has. The agency and it's staff go the extra mile to meet the needs of their clients and families. One specific example was taking a woman with 11 children and providing housing, substance abuse and mental health services to the entire family.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have had thte honor of seeing lives transformed, and I have become a better person for it.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Acquire more housing to assist more client's woith their housing needs.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I have worked with clients and their families involved in the criminal justice system and assisted them with learning the skills necessary to lead productive lives.
