Strong Families, Healthy Lives

The Nathanson Family Resilience Center is located in the Wendy and Leonard Goldberg Medical Building (300 Medical Plaza, 1st Floor) at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.


Our goal at the UCLA Nathanson Family Resilience Center is to be a leader in bridging the gap between research and real world practice. We do this by keeping a constant focus on the needs of the families we serve.

We seek to create and provide high quality, cost effective services that can be used to help families facing a variety of challenging situations. In addition to working with individual families, we also strive to build a stronger community of care for all families. We hope to promote family strength by increasing research, developing resources, sharing ideas and working together with other organizations.
