Mission

CRE Outreach is a non-profit performing arts organization dedicated to empowering underserved individuals from low-income populations in greater Los Angeles. CRE stands for Create, Reflect, Empower—words that encompass the process, focus, and targeted outcomes of our programs. Since 2007, CRE Outreach has utilized theatre, the performing arts, and educational programs as a means to enhance self-esteem, encourage self-expression, and empower individuals to overcome the challenges in their lives.

Purpose

Through our innovative performing arts programming, CRE Outreach actively engages approximately 2,650 individuals from many diverse segments of the greater Los Angeles community (including at-risk youth, people with disabilities, and military veterans), helping them overcome the challenges in their lives and successfully navigate through today’s society. CRE Outreach confronts the many challenges that our participants face and seeks to break down the barriers that contribute to the isolation and cultural divide felt by many in these communities. Our work provides a constructive and creative forum for individuals with limited accessibility to the arts to bring issues to the forefront and let their voice be heard.
