Two men named Sammie Morrison and Scott Dimock had a vision for a community house in southeast Washington DC. By unusual circumstance, they were gifted a house located at 2909 Pennsylvania Ave. SE and they decided to start serving the community from the home.
The Southeast White House begins hosting weekly reconciliation luncheons and starts its mentoring program with two mentors and 16 children.
The Southeast White House launches two new traditions: regular prayer breakfasts and a new set of programs designed for kids.
A partnership between the Southeast White House and the National Community Church lays the groundwork for a new community center, the DC Dream Center.
Construction on the DC Dream Center’s new facility begins.
The DC Dream Center is opened by Mayor Bowser on August 23rd, 2017.
The DC Dream Center is a center for community where the needs of people in our city, especially youth, are met. From mentoring and tutoring to personal development and legal assistance, the DC|DC encompasses a spectrum of programs from low-barrier after-school activities and tutoring, to programs that offer deeper engagement such as one-on-one mentoring. We are dedicated to serving the needs of the community through a holistic approach. One person at a time, the DC|DC inspires youth and adults to dare to dream and learn to lead, so that they reach their God-given potential.
The DC|DC couldn’t fulfill our mission without the support of our community and partners. Learn more about key partnerships that make our work possible.
