Social Change Networks Economic Opportunities & Resources
We must seize opportunities and environments where communities can demand equity. That means giving people true hope through tools and resources that work.
Individual, Family, & Community Resiliency
We are not a service agency. We are partners who live and build with communities on this journey. Community is our weapon.
Mobilization & Action Programs
We stand by the belief that together we have the power to succeed.
SBCC partners with residents to build empowered communities across Los Angeles county. We are a proven social change agency dedicated to activating individuals, families, and communities to fight for social justice and equity.
Our civic activations reach more than 20,000 families annually, transforming marginalized neighborhoods into communities that thrive.
SBCC is flipping that narrative and creating a structure to leverage all of the assets, gifts, and talents within a community in order to drive lasting change. As such, the SBCC model of community organizing places the long-term development and growth of relationships at the center of the process. SBCC’s commitment is to help build and sustain resilient, adaptable socially-engaged communities.
Poverty is the result of a lack of investment in people’s gifts and talents, disenfranchised individuals and communities, racial and class prejudice, lack of respect for community wisdom, and the absence of educational equity. It is not defined as laziness, lack of ambition, reckless spending, poor judgement, indifference to education, deficient problem solving, lethargy, chronic substance abuse.
capacity to thrive
SBCC believes that ensuring the well-being of families is key to improving the health, safety, and success of communities at large. Asset-based community development is the philosophical cornerstone of building a resilient, connected, thriving community. By building strengths and supporting residents rather than trying to solve deficit-based problems, communities will drive lasting change.
