As the City of Beverly Hills follows the Safer at Home Order for Control of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), Community Services understands that people want to stay engaged within the community and worldwide and has created a Virtual Community Services website, CommunityLifeBH.org, that brings you a multitude of online programs, services, activities and resources that will keep you active and nourished physically, mentally and spiritually at home!
At CommunityLifeBH.org, you will find fun, interesting, educational and interactive online resources for Arts & Culture, Recreation & Fitness, Enrichment & Learning, Library & Social Services, our Virtual Farmer’s Market and Farm-To-Home delivery and so much more!
Under Art & Soul, you will find inspiring music, dance, live performance and acts of human kindness to bring you comfort. In Arts & Culture, we will take you to The Broad Stage at Home, Artistic Short Films on Vimeo and Van Gogh Up Close. In Recreation, you will have access to preschool activities, arts & crafts, a Virtual Harry Potter Escape Room and Adult & Senior health, wellness, yoga and fitness classes. Are you looking for fresh produce from the Beverly Hills Farmers’ Market farmers and vendors? Please try our Virtual Farmers’ Market - you will find a list and contact information for our farmers and vendors who are providing products through delivery or shipping.
Our Library Services takes you to Beverly Hills Virtual Library, as well as to other online activities like Kanopy for movie streaming, Hoopla for digital movies, music, and e-Books, Mind Games for Seniors and Storytime from Space. And most importantly, we rely on our social services in this challenging time. Those in need can find help as part of City’s Human Services and Social Safety Net for our most vulnerable residents, as well as information on mental health, housing and homeless services.
Jenny Rogers, Community Services Director, says “The City’s Community Services Department has been working to develop creative ways to provide the community with critical and essential services and enriching and engaging community programs, events and activities while people are home bound. As part of the effort to fight the spread of COVID-19, we are inviting community folks to “Artmake, Recreate & Library in Place!” providing our community with an array of resources to support the physical, emotional and spiritual health of our residents.”
