The Dream Center’s purpose is to reconnect isolated people to God and a community of support by providing human services that address immediate and long-term needs in the areas of homelessness, hunger, poverty, addiction, education, and human trafficking.
Their vision is to build a community of resilient people whose lives have been redeemed by God’s love. The lives they change are not merely examples of God’s power to restore broken lives. The men, women and families they help also go on to share that love with others, to pass on the hope they have been given, and to make transformation possible for others.
Today, thousands of individuals, businesses and churches in Los Angeles and around the world have caught the vision of The Dream Center, volunteering and giving as God leads. More than 100 independent Dream Centers so far have taken root throughout the States!
The Father's House, partners with Dream Center through our We Love Our City community outreach and thru sending mission teams (students, interns, and adults) to the Dream Center to volunteer and "Find a need and fill it, find a hurt and heal it" ~ Pastor Tommy Barnett.
We believe when people engage in service, it leads to life change. Our short-term trips provide opportunities for people to serve together in various locations around the world. Our belief is that as people chose to serve, whether in one of our churches, in the local community, or around the world, the impact of that service will change lives—for those serving, for the people they serve, and even for those that see them choosing to give their time to help someone else.
For those of you who have not gotten involved, we hope this will be the year you choose to begin a lifestyle of service. And to those who are serving, we just want to say thank you. You are the reason the mission is being accomplished.
