Dedicated to Providing Quality Services



After 40 years of outstanding leadership, Dr. Jean G. Champommier retired from his role as President/CEO of Alma Family Services. At Alma’s Legacy Event, commendations from Los Angeles County Supervisor Hilda Solis, the City of El Monte, the City of Pico Rivera, LA County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, Assemblymember Christina Garcia, Senator Bob Archuleta, the City of Los Angeles, and Congresswoman Judy Chu were presented in recognition of Dr. Champommier’s incredible career. As an educator, social worker, a family therapist, a businessman, a LA County Public Health Commissioner, and nonprofit administrator, he dedicated his life to advancing behavioral health and child welfare, inspiring a new generation of committed leaders. This great convening of longstanding partners, which included the viewing of this Legacy Video, celebrated the interconnected legacy of Dr. Champommier and Alma Family Services, as well as welcoming those who will carry on our vision and mission into the future. Maria de Lourdes Caracoza was introduced as Alma’s new President/CEO after serving the community through Alma for over 35 years. You will find Dr. Jean G. Champommier’s special remarks along with a short bio of Maria de Lourdes Caracoza through the link below:
