One of the first Ministries launched by our Dream Center was Adopt-A-Block. We deliver things such as cleaning supplies, groceries, clothing and personal hygiene products all while getting to know those who live there. We spend time cleaning up the neighborhood in an effort to show our love and respect for the Community as a whole. this month’s efforts include:
backpacks filled with school supplies were distributed!
sets of bunk beds, with sheets were delivered
pounds of groceries were received by our neighbors!
H.o.m.e. (homeless outreach ministry and evangelism) happens twice a month. teams of volunteers visit the homeless in parking lots, camps, under bridges and on benches. We provide bagged meals, personal Hygiene products and hope. this month’s efforts include:
personal care kits!
pounds of groceries!

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you?When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
— Matthew 25:35-40
