Ms. Va Lecia Adams, Ph.D.

Term:

Since Mar 2008

Profile:

Executive Director Va Lecia Adams has extensive experience in counseling as well as non-profit program design and management. Before joining St. Joseph Center, Va Lecia spent six years as Director of Transitional Living for United Friends of the Children. While there she helped create and oversee Pathways, an 18-month transitional housing program that assists former foster youth with housing, college readiness, career development, financial assistance, mentoring, and individual counseling. While working on her Ph.D., Va Lecia served as Executive Director of The Stanford Medical Youth Science Program (SMYSP), housed in the Stanford University School of Medicine. SMYSP reaches out to low-income youth who are interested in becoming physicians. Va Lecia has also held the position of Vice President of Counseling Services for College Bound, a Cerritos-based non-profit organization that provides college counseling and guidance to minority youth. Born and raised in Southern California, Va Lecia graduated with a B.A. from the University of Southern California and earned an M.A. from Ball State University before completing her Ph.D. at Stanford University. Throughout her doctoral program, she researched the factors that create stress (such as poverty, academic under-achievement, and family problems) in ethnic minority youth. This work resulted in a chapter (co-authored with Dr. Teresa LaFromboise) entitled, ?Relational Group Therapy with African American Female Adolescents and Their Mothers,? published in the book The Intersection of Race, Class, and Gender: Implications for Multicultural Counseling (D. Pope Davis & H. L. K. Coleman, Eds.).

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

St. Joseph Center serves approximately 6,000 men, women, and children per year. SJC has continued to place a primary focus on addressing food insecurity, and offering case management and workshops aimed at providing clients with the tools necessary to establish self sufficiency and stability. As always, the Center continues to support homeless or individuals and families living in temporary housing access and maintain permanent supportive housing. Demand for our services remains persistent. In fiscal year 2011-12: --Almost 900 working poor households accessed our Food Pantry; these households comprised 3,018 individuals, 1,003 of whom were children and youth under the age of 18. The Pantry distributed 19,942 bags of groceries, including 2,098 bags in March 2012 alone, an agency record for a single month. --Bread and Roses Café served 27,266 hot, freshly prepared meals to 1,777 homeless people in an atmosphere that emphasizes dignity and respect for each individual. --Our Culinary Training Program graduated 43 clients and placed 30 of them in food service industry jobs that pay more than minimum wage. ---Homeless Service Center: Served 2,187 individuals with 30,980 units of emergency and basic services. --Family Center: Provide 318 families with ongoing case management services.   A focus for St. Joseph Center in the coming years is on early childhood intervention, which aims to strengthen families and reduce childhood toxic stress, which can contribute to a lifetime of challenges. Agency-wide, the Early Years Initiative will focus on building protective factors to reduce risk and create optimal outcomes for children, youth and families. In 2012-13, we are deepening our work on behalf of these children by employing best practices for promoting parent-child cohesion using a holistic approach that considers the interrelated physical and mental health of family units.   We have also been pioneers in Los Angeles in providing Housing First and Permanent Supportive Housing solutions for chronically homeless individuals. St. Joseph Center is on track to house at least 165 highly vulnerable chronically homeless individuals from the Venice community and a total of at least 60 from Santa Monica by 2015.
