Partner Agencies (Subcontractors): Compton Unified School District (CUSD), Compton Community College District (CCCD)
Project Description: Our project will help address the needs of youth (ages 12-24) in the City of Compton who use substances. The project seeks to lower the incidence of overdose and help mitigate the impact of opioid and stimulant misuse through education, advocacy, and sustainable culture change that reduce stigma around drug use; increase awareness of overdose response strategies and availability of naloxone; and improve the partners’ collective capacity to competently address the needs of youth who abuse substances.
St. John’s Community Health (SJCH) provides medical, dental, behavioral health, and support services through 20 health clinics in Los Angeles areas to low income, uninsured, underinsured, and insured community members of all ages. Our mission is to improve community health and reduce health disparities by delivering high quality, comprehensive services and impacting health and social policy. Our partnerships with agencies in Los Angeles complement and deepen the impact of our work on residents and our advocacy for systemic improvement and positive health outcomes.
