Some of these places include the Edison Historic District, Lincoln Park Historic District, La Casa Alvarado, Phillips Mansion, and the Pomona City Stable. There are approximately 2,700 historical homes as well that are still intact.1 Not only does the city work to remember the past, but they also have resources for the current residents. For instance, three times a year there is a citywide garage sale. There is also an 800 number to call for abandoned shopping carts.

Compared to other cities in the County, Pomona has one of the lower median incomes of around $40,000.

Mental Health in Pomona

Pomona is home to many minority residents, with about 22 percent of citizens identifying as Latino or Hispanic.2 Because minority populations tend to be underserved by mental health agencies, the need for quality, accessible, culturally sensitive mental health care is very high. For individuals who are experiencing grief after the loss of a loved one, the Inland Hospice Association provides free support groups. Day and evening groups are available at several locations throughout the Pomona Valley, making it easy to access support. Information about current groups can be obtained by calling 909-399-3289.3

Goodwill of Southern California recognizes that many youth do not have the skills they need to be self-sufficient and productive community members who lead mentally healthy lives. As a result, they offer many opportunities for youth to learn valuable skills that will help them transition into adulthood. Goodwill offers basic education classes and vocational training to prepare students to be informed workers. Mentoring services, internships and work experiences further prepare youth to enter the workforce. By preparing young people to be self-sufficient, with the educational and vocational tools they need to be successful, this company ensures that fewer youth experience homelessness, unemployment, and overall dissatisfaction with life. For more information about Goodwill's youth programs, call 909-242-7999.4

Current Education

People who have an interest in a career as a social worker can begin their path to that career by obtaining a master's degree in social work. The University of Southern California offers an online program for people who cannot commute to campus. The program is fully accredited and is ranked as one of the best in the nation by U.S. News and World Report. Online coursework is supplemented by field experiences in the student's hometown.

Some budgeting needed

While counseling can certainly be an expense for individuals and families in Pomona, with proper budgeting, it is entirely do-able and the risk/reward is worth it. For some families, it may be difficult to sustain a commitment to therapy without proper insurance coverage. If this is you, ask your therapist about low cost options as practitoners in and around Pomona may have flexibility or sliding scales
