About Dream Centers

Transforming communities one person at a time through collaboration with individuals and organizations who invest their time, talent and treasure.

Our Vision

We envision people who are thriving and a community that is flourishing. There is an unexplainable peace and new-found faith in Jesus hovering in the neighbourhood that brings transformation. Food insecurity is a thing of the past. The oppression of illiteracy has been lifted. Economic mobility is no longer an exception but a standard. Homes are well-cared for by their owners and the beauty and pride is something to behold.

Our Mission

The Dream Centers of Michigan’s mission is to engage people in need with the love of Christ, partnering with them to flourish, thrive, reach their potential, and move toward self-sustainability.
