Ring and Strength Based Community Change Team Up to Support Community Safety

By Ring on June 8, 2021

At Ring, we know that achieving our mission to help make neighborhoods safer requires the guidance of those who know their communities best. We are always looking for ways we can support communities and engage with more of our neighbors. That’s why we’re teaming up with Los Angeles nonprofit Strength Based Community Change (SBCC) to support individuals and families in Wilmington, CA (SBCC’s headquarters pictured above). Together, we hope to extend SBCC’s meaningful work to improve the safety and success of communities at large.

Ring is donating 1,000 Ring Video Doorbells, including free installation and a Ring Protect subscription, directly to eligible residents in the Wilmington community of Los Angeles County, at no cost. Ring is also making a monetary donation in support of SBCC’s various initiatives. For over 45 years, SBCC has been empowering Los Angeles communities, reaching more than 20,000 families annually. Their efforts focus on providing residents with resources that help harness the power of their existing strengths. From a Career Pathways program that matches individuals with local employers to mentoring students, SBCC strives to improve individual, family, and community resiliency.

“Every day, SBCC works to build stronger, more connected communities,” says Leila Rouhi, President of Ring. “We’re thrilled to support an organization in Ring’s backyard and provide increased security to Wilmington residents. SBCC believes that everyone can make a contribution to their neighborhood, and we share a commitment to making a lasting positive impact in the communities we serve. Collaborating with local organizations helps advance Ring’s mission to make safer neighborhoods, and we look forward to supporting SBCC and learning from each other’s experiences.”

By joining forces with Ring, SBCC Executive Director Colleen Mooney sees an opportunity to bring added peace of mind to local residents. She shares: “Lasting change happens when we come together on a local level and support each other by sharing our gifts, abilities and leadership. We're pleased Ring recognized our resident-led, community-driven approach and are excited to join in discussions regarding advancing community safety in Wilmington. Together, we can help build a better future.”

Congresswoman Nanette Diaz Barragán, Representative of California’s 44th District, has also voiced her support for this collaboration. Rep. Barragán is intimately involved in the Wilmington community and focuses on bringing change and opportunities for those who need it most. She notes: “We all share the goal of making our communities safer for the people who live here. SBCC has been working to strengthen our Los Angeles County communities, like Wilmington, for almost 50 years. We welcome the collaboration with Ring and their use of modern technology to help increase public safety and strengthen the connections between neighbors. Wilmington is an often overlooked community in the South Bay and I appreciate Ring's commitment to the neighborhood. It is important for corporations with a presence in Los Angeles County to join with community organizations to improve the safety of our neighborhoods.”

Residents interested in receiving a donated device in select Wilmington neighborhoods as identified by SBCC, can apply on Ring’s website here starting June 8th, 2021.
