The Somali Bantu Community of San Diego (SBCSD) became a Live Well San Diego Recognized Partner on June 15, 2010. Founded in 2005, the Somali Bantu community of San Diego educates, serves and organizes cultural and life-skill training programs in an effort to promote self-sufficiency for its community members.

The Somali Bantu Community of San Diego provides educational, cultural, and life-skill training programs in an effort to promote self-sufficiency within and among the individuals and families comprising not only the Somali Bantu community, but all refugees, immigrants, and low-income families and individuals in need of service.
The Organization mission is to provide the guidance and services needed to empower and aid Somali Bantu and other refugees as they integrate into American society. The Somali Bantu Community of San Diego supports Live Well San Diego by providing educational workshops on healthy habits and connecting families and individuals to affordable housing, as well as language and job training skills so they can thrive in their community.
