Mission Statement

One person at a time, the DC Dream Center inspires youth and adults to dare to dream, equipping them to reach their God-given potential.

Chris & Nile

Mentor for 1 years

One of the reasons that I wanted to mentor was because I knew that I would get exposed to new things and new experiences that I wouldn’t have otherwise. I think that being a mentor is just as much for me as my mentee.

Amora

Mentee for 5 years

For so long when I was at my lowest point Rachel would be the person who would rescue me from that and say “now you’re going to do this”, and it would be so much better and more helpful.

“I like the rap class, the workout room upstairs, the cooking class. I like the people here. It’s important to have a place like this for young people to take us off the streets.”

“I’ve been coming to the DC Dream Center for 11 years. At first I went to the after school programs, then in middle school I connected with The Vibe, attending and then becoming a youth leader. I help the kids come together and be a kid, escape reality. It’s important for the community here knowing that there’s people out there that want to help others out, be together and do things together.”

This Friday June 7th, hosted by The Pennsylvania Avenue Baptist Church at 3000 Pennsylvania Avenue SE!
“My favorite things at the DC Dream Center are the cooking class and the rap class. I get to sing songs and record them, and when my song gets posted I can hear it and see how I did. That’s why I like the Dream Center. They take good care of us, we learn and I really like it here.”

We had an awesome time at the All-In basketball huddle! Fellowship of Christian Athletes offers monthly huddles for people ages 12-30 with intellectual disabilities - we play basketball and have a time of fellowship with a Bible study, and of course have lots of fun! For more information on attending the next one or volunteering, please email Grace at gsmall@fca.org.
Executive Director Ernest Clover sharing about how hope becomes habit at the #SecondChance job fair in April! We welcomed 174 job seekers—102 people were offered an interview, and 48 people received at least one job offer! Thank you so much to our partners @btogetherorg and @anacostiarc 
and all the amazing volunteers who served with us. We’re praising God for dreams revived, hope restored, and purpose renewed!
