MISSION AND VISION
We reach, rescue, and restore people who have been isolated by poverty for the glory of God and the good of our city.
We accomplish our mission through three strategies:
Preventative Programs for Kids & Youth – we invest in the next generation through year-round feeding and enrichment programs and seasonal athletic teams that connect caring role models to at-risk youth.
Addressing basic and complex needs – our community resource center includes a food pantry, clothing closet, and connections to relationships, resources, and referrals. Clients receive assistance with homelessness prevention and recovery, employment applications, foster care intervention, and other services.
Dream Center Living – men seeking a sober life through Christ are empowered through a residential program to gain employment and contribute to their families and society.
Our vision is to build a community of resillient people who have been transformed by God’s love. The people whose lives are impacted by our programs go on to share that love with others, serving in the community and making transformation possible for others.
Our values at OKC Dream Center are based on the principle of reaching, rescuing, and restoring people with the life-changing message of the Gospel. We believe having values helps us develop a unified sense of commitment in seeing isolated people far from God raised to life in Christ. As this ministry continues to grow, these values may evolve based on our experiences, successes, and failures. We don’t believe they are for every organization, but they are values that make OKC Dream Center unique. Our Code is simply 5 values that keep the vision clear.
