Via Care is proud to announce a new partnership with Mental Health Advocacy Services to offer free legal assistance to those with mental health disabilities. 

Mental Health Advocacy Services is a private non-profit organization dedicated to providing free legal solutions to Angelenos with mental health disabilities to prevent homelessness.

In this community partnership, MHAS aims to collaborate with Via Care's case manager and manager providers to providing free bi-lingual legal services concerning housing in the East LA community. We believe families need safe and stable housing in order to thrive.
