LA Community Health Project

LA Community Health Project’s Mission
To improve the health and well being of people affected by drug use in Los Angeles County, to increase access to health care, empower people to protect themselves, and educate each other to reduce harm in our communities.
CHP combines direct services, advocacy, outreach, education, and research collaborations to fulfill this mission. Community Health Project was founded in 1992.

CHP has 4 main programs;
Syringe Exchange & Direct Services for People who use injection drugs — CHP's largest program is the exchange and outreach direct service program with sites in Hollywood, on Skid Row, in Watts & other parts of South LA, and Pico Union. It also includes the Satellite Syringe Exchange Peer Education program, Overdose prevention training and Narcan/ Naloxone distribution, as well as case management.

Overdose Outreach Project — An overdose training project that goes to communities without access to overdose prevention and Narcan/ Naloxone training. Overdose Outreach Project also provides on-site group trainings to drug users and their communities. We have provided trainings in Ventura, Orange & San Diego Counties to very diverse groups including drug users, their loved ones and health care professionals.

Transition Partners — A targeted health navigator program designed to help people who use injection drugs to transition from poor, episodic acute, or no health service usage to establishing themselves in patient centered medical homes. The three elements of Transition Partners includes: 1. Provider training curricula for non-clinical staff, clinical non prescribers, and one exclusively for medical prescribers. 2. Direct one-to-one health navigation including supportive case management, transportation, and support throughout transition process, and 3. Technical assistance to help other harm reduction programs start similar health navigator projects.

Community Education & Training — This program seeks to improve the quality of services available to our participants and other people who inject drugs by providing harm reduction training and education to service providers who work with them. These providers include youth and housing services, clinics, LGBT services, other harm reduction service providers, university professional schools such as social work, and medical schools, drug and alcohol treatment counselor certification courses. This program also provides training to law enforcement as well as training for other interested community groups.
