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.
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.
[The Dream Center visited me] every Saturday. We would laugh and cook and eat, you know, it’s just like family.
