    Community Convening in City Heights

    Community Convening

    The City Heights Community Convening is held twice a year to gather current Building Healthy Community (BHC) grantees, former BHC grantees, City Heights residents, and partner organizations working to make this community a better place for everyone.

    Featuring updates from The California Endowment, informative discussions on key issues, and team bonding activities, the community convening is a wonderful opportunity to engage those empowering City Heights and our San Diego region as a whole.

    Stay tuned for more information.
