Community Building Initiative
El Monte Community Building Initiative (CBI)
In 2007, the California Community Foundation launched the El Monte Community Building Initiative (CBI), a multi-year effort to engage residents, public agencies and businesses in identifying their community’s most critical challenges and develop solutions. In 2010, the community identified children’s health and education as its priorities.
In 2016, CBI transitioned to a community-driven, sustainable collaboration known as the El Monte Promise Foundation.
