Strategic Partnerships

SSG specializes in convening and leading community-based collaborative efforts and developing strategic partnerships to amplify the impact of our programming, extend the reach of services to a wider variety of communities, and promote the growth and success of other nonprofit organizations, especially small, local organizations that target unique underserved communities.

SSG Alliance

The SSG Alliance collaborative began in 1997 to address a serious unmet need for intensive services to assist API adults with mental health disorders to transition from hospital settings into the community. The API Mental Health Alliance convened multiple private and public partners to deliver culturally and linguistically appropriate Assertive Community Treatment to a group of individuals identified by LA County Department of Mental Health.  Since its inception, the Alliance has continued to support individuals to achieve stability and the highest level of independence possible in the community, in partnership with multiple other organizations, including:

  • South Asian Network
  • Search to Involve Pilipino Americans
  • Little Tokyo Service Center
  • Pacific Asian Counseling Services
  • Painted Brain
