On Friday, May 15, 2009, Mental Health America of Los Angeles (MHA) will host the Grand Opening Celebration of its new Antelope Valley facility. The Antelope Valley MHA provides a rehabilitative program, as well as adjacent housing. Offering enrichment services which promote mental wellness, MHA is instrumental in helping people cope with daily life and the challenges it brings.

“As part of the Lancaster Downtown Revitalization Project, this facility is an example of the projects we want to incorporate into our community. Programs and services which serve the citizens and improve their quality of life are essential to the growth of Lancaster,” commented Lancaster Mayer R. Rex Parris.

The City of Lancaster provided the land for this project for $1.00. The City also found the developer for the project and provided $500,000 of HOME funds toward its completion.
