Our History

WestCare is an organization that believes in community collaboration. We continue to bring programs to communities in need of our services.

WestCare Foundation is proud to offer programs and services across the continuum of health and human services. Every doorway into a WestCare program is designed to lead to solutions. These solutions are for the presenting issue as well as the first step toward identifying what may be other co-occurring factors impacting the life of a whole human being. WestCare creates a continuum of care within each and every one of its programs that is recognized for clinical excellence, coordinated access, and collaborative innovation.

Evolving from its origins as a single therapeutic community for men addressing drug addiction called the Fitzsimmons House, WestCare, today, provides a myriad of programs that benefit all people. From outpatient and residential programs treating substance use and mental health disorders, to shelters providing services to those with HIV/AIDS, domestic violence, and homelessness, to programs within the criminal justice system, to programs interfacing with and/or incorporating primary care services, WestCare’s nearly five decades of growth has been predicated on meeting the need or filling the gap where real people need real help.

Whether you are seeking information about a specific issue, services of a specific kind, programs in a particular location, or help for a specific person, the doors of WestCare are open and we are there to welcome you.
