Free Screening of Paper Tigers
On October 12, 2016. The Guidance Center held invited the community to join us to experience the inspiring promise of Trauma-Informed Communities through the free screening of the documentary film, Paper Tigers.
Paper Tigers is a testament to what the latest developmental science is showing – that just one caring adult can help break the cycle of adversity in a young person’s life.
Together with Long Beach Unified School District (LBUSD), The Guidance Center recently launched a similar pilot program at Beach High School this year. Thank you to all who joined us for the powerful screening, the community plays a critical part in the success of the program and we look forward to sharing our progress with you as we move forward.
Thanks to your generous support, Sunset Sip is SOLD OUT!

JOIN ME IN THIS JOURNEY...
“Fear. Obstacles. Uncertainty. Pride. Confidence. Hope. These are the roller coaster of emotions I’ve been experiencing as I train for the Sean O’Brien 50K Trail Run on February 6, 2016. Why did I say yes to a 31-mile mountain run with an elevation climb of 6,500 feet?”
Read the journey of our Executive Director Patricia Costales, LCSW below and why she decided to take on this challenge.

SAN PEDRO CLINIC’S OPEN HOUSE
Thank you to everyone who attended our San Pedro Clinic’s Open House on Wednesday, June 17. We are so happy to be in this new space, and our San Pedro staff and clients are especially thrilled to call this new location home.
We’d like to give a special shout out to Timothy, a former 19-year-old client, who chose to share his moving story during the open house. And special thanks to the Children’s Benefit League who made a generous contribution to help fund our San Pedro Clinic’s play therapy room (pictured above). Their continuous support of The Guidance Center is making a world of difference in our clients’ lives.
