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