AR CENTER OPENS COMMUNITY CRISIS FOOD SERVICEIn February of this year American Renascent Center started developing several new projects to support families that are struggling with mental health, and families that are in the category of high risk based on the Center for Disease Control (CDC). One of these projects, Community Crisis Center, is a food service/pantry. Our organization has partnered with Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, Los Angeles Response Team Certs, USC Medical Food Bank, local farmers, and food warehouse chains to provide and deliver healthy nutritious items directly to homes of families that we've targeted, based on American Renascent Center and CDC criteria, to ensure that they stay healthy and informed during this pandemic. "I would also like to personally thank each and every one of our Facebook donors who are constantly supporting our efforts" says AR Center CEO Ty Johnson. A big thank you also comes from all the board members and volunteers of American Renascent Center Outreach. For more information call/text Ty johnson at 1-323-534-8980.

On the weekends Burning Desire is the topic. If you're having difficulties (or success), tell us about it.
