Welcome to the Double Secret Project
We believe in treating people like people, not billable hours. Radically transforming Los Angeles' mental health system and the way in which services are provided to our community members experiencing homelessness. We are here for "whatever it takes" to build a better system for us all!
Built out of frustration from working within the current fragmented mental health and homeless services systems, our team believes in doing things differently. As respected providers within the community with expertise in providing intensive supportive services, we have seen the cracks and know what it takes to stop people from falling through them.
This is the next step...

Communities Come First
Field-BasedInstead of operating out of a clinic, our highly mobile team provides services directly on our streets where they are needed most and continues to support people after they move into housing. Significantly reducing the barriers of access to health care while providing ongoing customized and coordinated support to maximize stability long-term.
24/7 SupportRecognizing that crises do not always happen during regular business hours, our team has a 24/7 on-call number and staff to respond to emergency situations. Coordinating incoming referrals from first responders and helping to ensure proper discharge planning from emergency room care.
Truly Recovery-OrientedUtilizing evidence-based practices, our services are centered on the person to build upon their strengths and resilience. Integrating with the community to achieve improved health, wellness, and quality of life. Meeting people where they are on the recovery spectrum; we embody the platinum rule: "Treat people the way that they would like to be treated."
CustomizationLos Angeles' homelessness crisis is a decades-old issue and each person has unique needs. Our team bridges the gaps people often fall through by providing multidisciplinary services for as long as a person needs them. Adapting recovery plans to meet their evolving goals as they transition from the streets into housing.
