The Beverly Hills Ambassador Program is a one-year pilot adopted by the City of Beverly Hills and run by the independent service company Block by Block to enhance the high quality of life for which the City is renowned. 

Ambassadors will work in partnership with the City’s Human Services department, police and other departments to address aggressive panhandling and connect individuals with social service needs to the City’s Changing Lives and Sharing Places (CLASP) Homeless Outreach Team.    Their focus will be in the City’s downtown core serving residents, merchants and visitors. 

Stay tuned to the pilot program throughout this coming year. The Human Relations Commission meets at 9:00am the third Thursday of the month. The Commission will review reports on progress and impact on the community as the year unfolds. Attend in person or watch online.
