American Renascent Community Outreach

People helping people


American Renascent Center has created a project that removes barriers preventing families from receiving healthy essentials. Our goal is to place a “buffer” between the families that we serve and the Covid-19. We developed a system to support families that are struggling with mental health, and families that have underlining health condition, or are abiding by the safer at home order given by CDC. The project, is a high risk family distribution delivery system created as an extension of Los Angeles CERTS (Community Emergency Response Team). We're also a part of Los Angeles Neighborhood Team Program ( Neighborhood Team Program is a collaboration of Community Crisis Center, Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training taught by LAFD, the block level organization of Ready Your LA Neighborhood (RYLAN), and the community Neighborhood Watch groups. The Neighborhood Team Program is designed to help you and your neighbors get prepared for a disaster. Visit our CCC page here or click the Community Crisis Center link in the navigaton menu. We would like to give special thanks to these organizations for their support:

In this group a general topic is selected each week ( Health, Nutrition, Burning Desire, Education of Mind) and everyone can share or post regarding that topic during that week. On the weekends Burning Desire is the topic. If you're having difficulties (or success), tell us about it. And if there is something going on in your life that you have to share immediately during the weekdays please do. Everything posted in this meeting is private and will not be posted to the public.
