ABOUT SBCC

For forty years, SBCC has helped communities in Los Angeles County discover and develop tools for individual and collective well-being. Throughout our history and across the full range of programs that currently reach more than 5,000 families across the county, we have made a core commitment to place the gifts, talents, and leadership capacity of individuals, families, and neighborhoods first.

We focus our efforts on the key challenges and opportunities faced by low-income Angelenos striving to build communities where children and families thrive. We organize this work not as services provided to clients, but as initiatives carried out in partnership with individual, family, and neighborhood partners who build their own capacity to incubate, create, and sustain positive change. These initiatives are clustered in our four Impact Strategies, which come together in our Priority Community Strategy.
