Bradley, a 24-year-old transition- age youth, fell into homelessness after struggling with substance abuse issues. While living near the Los Angeles riverbed, he was engaged by Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority
outreach workers, in collaboration with local law enforcement. The outreach workers started connecting Bradley to supportive services in an effort to address his mental health concerns. Bradley was able to receive support from a PATH Multi-Disciplinary Team, Department of Mental Health HOME, and other clinical providers. He was also able to stay at a Project Roomkey hotel while awaiting his transition into permanent housing. Bradley was matched to El Cielito Lindo, a permanent housing
program with on-site supportive services. On June 25, 2020, Bradley signed a lease for permanent housing and now plans to return to school and reconnect with his family.
