The Dream Center is a faith-based charitable organization that finds and fills the needs of struggling people from all over the United States. Since 1995, thousands of individuals and families have found hope and healing through the programs that only the Dream Center offers. The Dream Center aims to not only meet the immediate needs of communities like providing food and clothing, but also focuses on the full successful transformation of people’s lives, all free of charge. Our mission at the Philly Dream Center is to connect broken people to a community of support by offering free resources and services that address immediate and long-term needs in the areas of poverty, addiction, and abuse. The Philly Dream Center serves as a resource center focused on finding solutions to homelessness, hunger, and the lack of education through community outreach programs.
What to expect
Students who join the Philadelphia Cohort can expect to make a huge impact in one of America’s deeply hurting cities. From playing games with neglected and abused kids in drug infested neighborhoods, to helping hand out warm plates of food from our fully equipped food truck. You will have many evangelistic opportunities to make a difference in the city of brotherly love through one of our dinner church experiences or on the streets with working with our VIP’S. The possibilities are endless and we are excited that we get to serve!!
