As an established leader in the Los Angeles region, SBCC has empowered individuals, strengthened families and transformed communities in partnership with community residents for more than four decades. Originally established in 1973 as a community mental health center, SBCC has provided free and low-cost counseling and psychotherapy services to families and individuals in need. While we continue that work today, SBCC has grown and evolved over the years to address broader challenges faced by individuals, families and communities throughout Los Angeles. Today, SBCC is a multi-faceted organization whose objectives are focused on supporting resident-driven civic engagement and positive social change— building communities where children and families thrive. Our mission is anchored in SBCC’s core belief that sustainable social impact must be resident-led and community-driven. Through this work, we promote local leadership so residents become active agents of change.
