Virtual Beverly Hills Community Services

Arts & Culture, Recreation & Parks, Library & Human Services
Your online source for body, mind & spirit - arts, education, enrichment, wellness & more!

On March 11, 2020, the first Safer at Home Order for Control of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) was mandated and we eventually went into lockdown. In an effort to stay engaged with our community, we developed this site, CommunityLifeBH, to provide a variety of resources and things to do, virtually, to nourish you physically, mentally and spiritually!

We are now at the Quarantine-versary and we are beginning to see some relief.

In recognizing that the past year has been an adjustment for all of us, you will find links at CommunityLifeBH.org, providing some perspective on the last year and the affects the pandemic has had on us. You’ll also find some much needed comic relief & helpful resources as we celebrate the resiliency of our community in successfully navigating this year-long odyssey! We hope you will enjoy these fun, interactive sites in arts & culture, learning & enrichment, recreation & fitness, health & wellness, library & social services and more! Below are some sample links being offered.

All Beverly Hills Community Services programs, events and activities will be marked with a -BH

When we are safely able to do so, we can't wait to engage with you in person through our many programs, activities, classes and events. Continue to follow us on our social media channels to stay updated.

Thank you for being there with us during this unprecedented time!
