About Open Arms
Open Arms is a community center in San Bernardino that provides a safe place for our youth to come to hang out and receive resources. We offer free Wi-Fi and snacks to youth 14 – 25 years of age from 8am to 8pm daily. We offer drug prevention and other classes, as well as provide giveaways of food and hygiene products. Our staff, volunteers, and participants participate in community outreach activities throughout the area.
Open Arms organizes movie nights, game nights, and other activities for the youth to participate in and feel like part of a family. These services empower vulnerable youth and helps them get back on the right path to becoming a productive and happy member of the community.
