Resiliency Programs

Malibu experienced one of the most devastating disasters in the history of the City when, in November 2018, the Woolsey Fire burned through Malibu, destroying homes and displacing families, which produced community-wide trauma and distress.

The City desires to act as a catalyst for rejuvenation within the community by offering events, resources, and support to community members to promote healing, rejuvenation, and resiliency. Together, we will take steps to rebuild our optimism and restore our community. Together, we will be resilient. 

All residents are encouraged to take advantage of the many resiliency programs that will be available to the community. 

Resiliency Programs

The Community Services Department hosted a variety of programs, including: yoga, drama therapy, art therapy, meditation, music programs, and more. 

The Environmental Sustainability Department is also offering a series of free rebuilding workshops that will include topics such as: 

  • Increasing fire-resiliency in building design
  • Fire-conscious landscaping
  • Community emergency preparedness
  • Water and energy self-reliance
  • Associated rebates and incentives

Each workshop will be co-sponsored by a local organization, non-profit, or agency.
