The Anaheim religious community has been recognized as playing an important role in contributing to a safer and healthier community. From its inception in 1993, as a suggestion of the Gang-Drug Task Force, ARCC has provided a communication channel for religious leaders to share their individual efforts in addressing youth development challenges. An early objective for ARCC was to establish Youth/Family Activity Centers throughout Anaheim. Many church facilities are being used for sports events to learning centers.

By hosting regular meetings of ARCC and encouraging cooperative strategies, the City of Anaheim hopes to promote the most effective use of our community-wide resources. People helping people - ministering to the needs of the community.  This is what the ARCC helps to accomplish in Anaheim.  The Anaheim religious community has been recognized as playing an important role in the contributing to a safer and healthier community.  Form its inception in 1993, as a suggestions by the Gang-Drug Task Force, ARCC has provided a communication channel for religious leaders to share their individual efforts in addressing youth development challenges.  An early objective for the ARCC was to establish Youth/Family Activity Centers throughout Anaheim.  Many church facilities are being used for sports events to learning centers.
