DC Dream Center

DC Dream Center Formerly known as the Southeast White House, the Dream Center is an extension of that legacy, intended to be a place of personal development and community.
(10)

The DC|DC is a community center where youth, individuals and families can come together in the spirit of unity to awaken dreams. From mentoring and tutoring to an after school program, we are dedicated to serving the needs of the community through a holistic approach, which is made possible through our partners, volunteers and donations. The building is a four-story community space with an art center, dance studio, computer lab, basketball court, meeting spaces and offices to serve and bring new opportunities to the community. Our goal is simple: to provide a safe space that inspires the next generation to be leaders who dare to dream and reach their full potential. This is a place where hope becomes habit!

Mission: Giving out free meals and resources in Jesus' name.

We are praising the Lord for a really exciting development - the food deliveries with the Farmers to Families program will continue every Saturday through October! This means we will be able to continue giving out fresh produce, milk, dairy products and meat to hundreds of families every week!

To make this happen, we need 50 volunteers each week to help load cars and serve our walk up line. Can you volunteer with us one Saturday? We'd love to have you join us at 3000 Pennsylvania Avenue SE from 11am-3pm; click here sign up: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b0f4da5a622a4f85-october.

"We were working together as a team. I'm a carpenter and that's one of the things we do, I'll take a crew of people to build rooms, hang signs, we lay carpet; that caught my attention and kept me enthused on coming back.

I haven't worked since March because of Covid, they started cancelling shows so I came over March 16th and kept coming back every day.

I've been overwhelmed seeing the blessings, people just keep on giving. People give us food to give out! People come and get food to give to others, to families and senior citizens. That was really inspiring to me. I know we can't outgive God but we were given stuff to give away, every day, for months - we didn't run out. That was one of the things that kept me going "wow, people really give like this!".

We're highlighting some of the incredible volunteers who have served with us during the Covid season. Mr. Ed has served with us on a full time basis since March in the DC Dream Kitchen and we are so thankful for him!
