Community & Cultural Services oversees a diverse range of programs, projects and services with one thing in common: people. We work with the community to create and operate beautiful, accessible public spaces and facilities for all to enjoy. We produce programs and events that enrich the lives of community members - culturally, socially, and physically. We also ensure that supportive services are available for those in need, including children, families, seniors, people with disabilities and low-income or homeless individuals. In short, our work enhances the overall wellbeing of Santa Monica's residents and visitors.
