For more than 40 years, SBCC has empowered communities across Los Angeles to discover and develop tools for individual and collective well-being. Across our full range of innovative, grassroots programs and initiatives, we reach more than 10,000 families annually. As an organization, we have made a core commitment to place the gifts, talents and leadership capacities of neighborhoods first; as it is our belief that sustained positive impact must be resident-led and community-driven.
SBCC’s mission is to empower ourselves, individuals, families, and communities through innovating and co-creating a better future. In partnership with residents we:
Strengthen Social Networks
Improve Economic Opportunities
Increase Access to Quality Services
Mobilize for Collective Action
