MATTHEW BARNETT

Matthew Barnett, co-founder of THE DREAM CENTER and senior pastor of

the former Queen of Angels Hospital, is now a refuge for the city of Los
Angeles’ homeless, abandoned teens, gang members and those suffering
from drug and alcohol addiction. Los Angeles is being changed daily
through THE DREAM CENTER and most people in the city are unaware of it.
On behalf of Barnett, we would love to invite you to experience “IT
STARTED WITH A DREAM” first-hand. Please visit www.angelustemple.org.

40,000 people per month (one million pounds of food) and houses more
than 500 people daily each week, meeting them with love and a helping
hand at their greatest point of need. THE DREAM CENTER provides food,
shelter, clothing, life rehabilitation, education, job training and
numerous resources through its 273 programs and outreaches. From its
humble beginnings in 1994, located in a formerly crime-infested

outstanding models of transformation in America.
