We are residents and local business owners. Students and teachers. Community organizations and nonprofit partners.

We see the many needs of the people who live, work, and play in our city. From housing and social services to education and overall wellbeing, we believe that we all must work together to create a Santa Monica that works for everyone.


We Are Santa Monica is an initiative of the City of Santa Monica that invites you to join neighbors, local nonprofits, businesses, and community organizations to create a stronger community for all.

Thanks for joining us! Starting in Mid-August, this site will be updated to include more information and resources that connect to people, programs, and services across the city. In the meantime, please download the toolkits and sign up for email updates.

We are taking action.

We are focusing on a variety of issues impacting our city, and one of the most urgent is addressing homelessness in our community. Regional increases in homelessness affects everyone in Santa Monica, from those who are experiencing homelessness or at risk of it, to those who want to know about what’s being done. Together with local partners and concerned citizens like you, we are part of a community-wide effort to respond with compassion for everyone and at all levels.

Most people don’t know where to start. We have a new toolkit that directs people to different tips, resources, and organizations.
