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.

Helping people to embrace who they are,
realize their future, and  change the world.

Our Mission

SBCC’s mission is to empower individuals, families, and communities through innovation and co-creation, we achieve this through our four impact areas:

  • Social Networks

  • Economic Opportunities and Resources

  • Services

  • Mobilization


Our Vision

Networks of relationships build the social capital to drive neighborhood change. Our model of community organizing differs from most by placing the long-term development and growth of relationships at the center of the process. Our commitment is to support the creation of resilient, adaptable, socially-engaged communities over the long term.
