Mission Statement

The Dream Center serves New Yorkers right where they are, to where they dream to be.

Description

The Dream Center is a non-profit established in 2008 and based out of Chelsea, New York. We host community events in the Chelsea-Elliot housing complex twice a week. These events include free block parties and community markets that are a fun and humanizing way to meet the tangible needs of the community like food, clothes, and household items. We have a program called Residential Assistance where we visit clients in their homes and take care of whatever needs the individuals may have. Our clients live throughout the city and are referred to us through social workers, other residents, and members of our communities. The needs of our clients are quite ranged. Many are simply lonely and we visit them just to spend time with them. On the other end of the spectrum, a large portion of our clients suffer from a compulsion to hoard. In the cases that our resident has a hoarding disorder, we lovingly walk alongside them for weeks, months or years until we arrive at their goal of having a clean home. We also host an event for the homeless and those in immediate need in East Harlem every Friday afternoon. We distribute food, clothes, hygiene items, and many other resources including information about housing, meals, and church programs available to everyone. All of these programs are ways that we currently engage volunteers, and we are always looking to grow our partnerships in the city.
