We Are Santa Monica invites you to join neighbors, local nonprofits, businesses, and community organizations to create a stronger community for all.

We see the needs of all the people in our city and we are investing in every aspect of our community wellbeing. From housing and social services to lifelong education, the city’s programs, resources, and community partnerships reflect Santa Monica’s long-held commitment to the wellbeing of every person. And thanks to the support of local nonprofit partners and active members of our community, we are all working together to create a Santa Monica that works for everyone.

We’ve organized this work into a few specific goals where we are making measurable impact on the lives of people.
