Community Resources – give your input!

Ayúdanos a fortalecer los servicios sociales en santa mónica.

Please join us:

The City’s Human Services Division needs your input as they work to reimagine the City’s social service grants and direct services that serve thousands of Santa Monica residents every year. Through a series of meetings, they are seeking community feedback on what measures of success are most meaningful and impactful, as well as what types of services are needed.

As valued local community partners, and people who live and work in Santa Monica, your insight is needed to ensure that the City’s social services are contributing to a safe, inclusive and diverse community that supports a thriving economy.  In addition to your own attendance at one of these meetings, we are asking that you share this opportunity with your networks.

Together we build a stronger and more inclusive community!
