Celebrating over 40 years

South Bay Community Services (SBCS) is a community based nonprofit that provides a comprehensive range of services and programs for children, youth and families in San Diego County. Our programs are for everyone at anytime in their lives when they may need it the most. With our generous supporters, together, we are able to respond to the overwhelming needs of our community . . . touching the lives of more than 50,000 annually.


Our Story

We began our work as “Our House” in 1971 as a drop-in center in the City of Chula Vista where teens struggling with drug abuse could go for counseling and rehabilitation. As we worked closely with each youth, we learned that many of these teens were coming from homes with domestic violence issues, economic struggles or other stressors that were impacting every essence of their lives. 

Out of this need, SBCS was born and has since grown into one of the largest multi-social service nonprofits in San Diego County. Today, there are more than 500 on staff stationed throughout the region including schools, police departments, family resource centers and affordable housing locations – including our main location in the heart of the City of Chula Vista. 

While the times have changed and services have evolved, our mission has always remained the same: to restore hope and provide support for people to create the best life they can for themselves.

SBCS is a community-based non profit 501(c)3 - Tax ID 95-2693142.
