This is a new space we have created on the website to update our partners on some of the new events that LARRP is sponsoring and participating in as well as some of the changes and growth within the organization itself.
Adopt a Bike
In collaboration with the Los Angeles Metro, Walk and Rollers, and other community-based organizations, LARRP participated in an initiative called Adopt a Bike where entities collaboratively came together to assist our communities. This event took place Friday, May 21st at the Los Angeles Union Station where community members got the opportunity to pick out a free bike of their choice. Community members were ecstatic to receive their new bikes! If you would like to partner up with LARRP contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Visit to the D.O.O.R.S Center
This month we had the pleasure of having Supervisor Holly Mitchell, Judge Espinoza, and our very own Pastor Troy Vaughn visit the D.O.O.R.S center to share with Supervisor Mitchell the amazing collaborative efforts everyone is doing at the D.O.O.R.S Community Reentry Center. This collaboration between the Los Angeles Probation, Office of Diversion and Reentry, and diverse community-based organizations show what true partnership looks like to assist our reentry communities. If you would like to learn more about the D.O.O.R.S Center contact our Outreach and Engagement Coordinator Evelyn Garcia at email@example.com

LARRP Reentry Wellness Hour
Last month LARRP conducted its very own first Reentry Wellness Hour in collaboration with The Pheonix, D.O.O.R.S Community Reentry Center, HOPICS, Office of Diversion and Reentry, and the Los Angeles County Probation Department.
The Phoenix, a sober active community that harnesses the transformative power of connection and movement, conducted an amazing workout that included meditation, yoga, and HIIT workouts for D.O.O.R.S clients, community service providers, and the broader community.
The D.O.O.R.S- HOPICS team gifted all participating D.O.O.R.S clients a $100 Visa gift card to thank them for being clients and participating in our event. The D.O.O.R.S Community Reentry Center also shared all of their wonderful resources offered at the center. Services offered include housing, employment opportunities, legal support, education, parenting classes, anger management classes, career counseling, and much more.
This is a prime example of the type of collaborative events LARRP puts together to bring our reentry communities together to support one another. If you're interested in learning more about the D.O.O.R.S Community Reentry Center contact Evelyn Garcia at firstname.lastname@example.org
