CLARE | MATRIX
Nearly doubling our capacity for sober living recovery housing by increasing the number of locations
from three to six;
Proudly maintaining our accreditation with the internationally-recognized standards of the
Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF);
Completing a fundraising campaign to renovate our 9th Street Campus;
Created Healing House, a residential program in partnership with the Department of Mental Health;
Combining 85+ years of combine experience of two organizations into one with a common culture
that serves as a place of hope and recovery as well as a best place to work.
Simultaneously, we deepened our impact through offering more intensive services to people with co-
occurring disorders and those in residential treatment, including medically observed detoxification and
residential services for pregnant and post-partum women with children, and Medication Assisted
Treatment services.
CLARE | MATRIX has become an industry-defining organization that successfully combines CLARE
Foundation’s years of expertise in delivering residential services with the internationally recognized
Matrix Model – an evidence-based practice recognized for its outpatient treatment model, research and
training.
Our merger, like that of any other, was not without its hiccups. Throughout the 2018-19 Fiscal Year, we
hadn’t yet merged the financial tracking of two different systems, and our discovery process was
educational. Fortunately, we have strong community partners and benefited from being selected for the
Non-Profit Sustainability Initiative (NSI), a project led by ten of the most enlightened foundation funders in
Los Angeles philanthropy. Managed by the California Community Foundation, The Ahmanson
Foundation, The Ralph M. Parsons Foundation, and Unihealth Foundation, NSI supports Los Angeles
area non-profits in exploring and implementing long-term partnerships and restructuring efforts that lead
to organizational effectiveness and efficiencies.
Even in the face of lost revenue from construction delays and cash flow issues stemming from delayed
government-funded payments during the 35-day shutdown in the middle of the fiscal year, we forged
ahead with our life-changing work. Our major accomplishments for the 2018-19 year include:
As we continue our journey to create a better system for people experiencing substance use and
behavioral health disorders in underserved populations, I want to thank all those who make it possible for
us to provide these critical services. From our front-line clinicians and addiction specialists to government
partners, donors and private foundations, I want to express my gratitude for your commitment to our work
in providing a caring and hopeful place for people searching for a new way of life. Thank you for your
support.
Propelled by the shared belief that together we can save more lives,
The CLARE Foundation and Matrix Institute on Addictions joined
forces in 2018. Fiscal Year 2018-19 was filled with exciting challenges
as we continued our journey as a newly merged organization
capitalizing on the strengths of our origins.
The reorganization and streamlining of operations with our merger
continued throughout the year, with the consolidation of the Matrix
West Los Angeles into the Santa Monica clinic and closure of the
Woodland Hills outpatient clinic.
