HBT's mission is to enhance
the quality of life in Los Angeles by teaching and empowering people to
change their environments through community capacity building, physical
improvements and job creation. Created in 1992 by neighborhood volunteers.
HBT has grown into a respected county wide organization.
Through its work, HBT serves
entire communities by improving school campuses, neighborhoods and
business districts, as well as by providing educational workshops and
vocational training to at-risk youth.
HBT has adopted over 110
public schools, hired 2,500 youth and implemented 250 mural walls. After
first giving instruction in both art and the environment, our staff has mentored
over 27,000 children in interactive art, tree planting, and cleaning
projects at their own schools.
Each year, HBT plants 2,000
trees, abates over two million square feet of graffiti, and
removes more than 30 tons of trash from the city streets throughout Los
