With more than 50 years of experience in Mental Health and Homeless Services, our field based team has established themselves as well respected providers with expertise in providing street outreach and intensive supportive services to individuals who are homeless and affected by mental illness in Los Angeles.
Join the Movement: Maintaining the status quo has not worked for the past 30 years and the $299 million Orange County spends every single year is failing our communities. In 2019, Los Angeles' Measure H & HHH connected more people to services and housing than ever before, with thousands of people moving off our streets. But as thousands more become homeless each year, it's time to roll up our sleeves and continue working towards real solutions!
What OC Burrito Project's Future Looks Like: The Double Secret Project
With 50+ years experience providing high quality care to our most vulnerable community members, our team is here as the Disruptors of Los Angeles' Mental Health system. The existing "bill-for-service" model has lost focus on the people served while draining valuable taxpayer resources and reducing the amount of time actually spent addressing a persons needs.
Based upon the innovations of the TRIESTE Model, the Double Secret Project will focus on stabilizing individuals, supporting through transitional and permanent housing with intensive mental health services, establishing benefits, and providing a holistic support network during critical times of transitioning from homelessness to existing services while building supports within the community.
Implementing a capitated system instead of the existing "bill-for-services," we minimize costs while maximizing outcomes; each Member served by the Double Secret Project receives support for roughly $12,000 annually, or less than $35 per day.
Providing access to a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, Licensed Psychiatric Technician, Clinical Social Workers, Housing Coordination, Legal Support, and Intensive Case Management Specialists in a field based and highly mobile setting. Delivering services wherever they are needed most and continuing to care for our Members as they build their lives integrating within the community.
