HOPE FOR NEW YORK
Dream Center NYC
Downtown · The East Side · The West Side · Uptown

Dream Center NYC’s programs are primarily based in Chelsea and East Harlem in a collection of public housing communities and outdoor relief stations. They serve their communities through creating family-centered weekly block parties and free community markets. Additionally, each week they establish outdoor relief stations in East Harlem to provide a place of refuge and support for individuals walking through homelessness. Lastly, they serve elderly and disenfranchised New Yorkers through free city-wide in home visitations.

OUR PARTNERSHIP
The Dream Center provides a great opportunity for groups and families to serve together at their Adopt-a-block parties and Restore programs.
Through our Nonprofit Accelerator, Dream Center received training in nonprofit management essentials to ensure a strong foundation that promotes organizational effectiveness and sustainability.
We love that the Dream Center NYC meets New Yorkers where they are, literally, by entering into low income communities to provide much needed resources and support.
VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

Adopt-A-Block: Saturday Block Party is the Dream Center NYC’s program designed to serve individuals in Chelsea who live in public housing. This weekly program allows families to receive much needed household goods while showing them respect and maintaining their dignity. Creating this fun atmosphere gives space for relationships to build, humanity to thrive, and lifeless handouts to be a thing of the past.

Chelsea:

 

  • Volunteers will distribute donated goods to community attendees, and sit and speak or pray with members of the Chelsea-Elliot community during the outreach. Short orientation provided day-of.

 

*Volunteer opportunities are for individuals of all ages. All individuals under 13 should have a parent or guardian present.


See below to sign up for these opportunities.
