About Us

 

The CLARE Foundation is a nonprofit organization providing effective and compassionate treatment, recovery, and prevention services for alcoholism and substance abuse to individuals, families, and the community.

Founded in 1970, CLARE has its origins in the late 1960s when a group of sober alcoholics began bringing food, blankets, and the message of recovery to homeless alcoholics on the beaches of Santa Monica and Venice. Since then, CLARE has evolved into a multi-site organization with 11 highly effective and cost-efficient residential, outpatient, and prevention programs that serve thousands of adults and young people each year. We have program sites in Santa Monica, Venice, Culver City, and West Los Angeles.
