In 2018, Saban Community Clinic began to participate in E6, a street outreach team focused on assisting the most vulnerable homeless individuals in our community. In collaboration with key partners and Los Angeles County, the group consists of a case manager, mental health clinician, peer (a formerly homeless individual), and a medical provider. This comprehensive team delivers care beyond the walls of the Clinic, directly to individuals on the streets. Services include administering medical care, providing resources and linkages to case management and support services, with the ultimate goal of moving individuals into housing.

Saban Community Clinic is one of few agencies in the Hollywood-Wilshire area which provides free access to showers on a walk-in basis. Since the early 90s, thousands of men and women have found hope and restored their sense of dignity with a warm shower at the Clinic. We treat everyone with the respect they deserve and provide services and case management that gives them the strength to start-over. More than 60 people a day utilize the shower program and are provided with toiletries or one of our signature Homeless Connect Kits filled with essential items they need like a protein bar, water, new underwear, socks, and more.
To help someone in need, make an in-kind donation of toiletries (full and sample sizes accepted) and new undergarments,
