The Guidance Center

The Guidance Center has been leading children and families to a brighter future for more than 60 years. We provide quality mental health care to nearly 3,000 children and families in the communities of Long Beach, Compton, San Pedro, and Avalon.

From children suffering from abuse and neglect to teens struggling with depression and substance abuse to families coping with gangs and community violence, The Guidance Center is here to help.

Mission & Vision
The Guidance Center provides comprehensive mental health treatment to our community’s most disadvantaged children and their families struggling with mental illness and abuse, leading them toward a positive and productive future.

The Guidance Center envisions a community where all children have the help they need to be healthy and happy.
