Mothers, daughters, friends and mentors—let's celebrate each other! Join Prototypes to tell someone #YouInspireMe.


Why Prototypes?

Mothers seeking treatment for addiction, mental illness and domestic violence often face an impossible choice: Give up their children to foster care or a guardian, or continue to suffer.

Prototypes is their lifeline. By enabling women to keep their children with them during treatment, both get the help they need. Combining comprehensive treatment services with life skills training, Prototypes prepares women for long-term success.

Prototypes has been empowering women to live independently for three decades and serves more than 10,000 individuals and families annually in communities throughout Southern California. We believe that everyone deserves access to care and treatment that can help them overcome the challenge of a lifetime. Don’t you?
