Last week the Career Development team visited the Dream Center in Los Angeles alongside 20+ Biola students. We got a tour around the entire campus and saw first hand what it takes to run a successful outreach organization.
The Dream Center houses over 700 permanent residents ranging from foster kids to full families. Around 2,000 hot meals are served daily at the Dream Center and their outreach programs distribute over 1,000,000 pounds of food and 3,000 articles of clothing monthly. The Dream Center runs programs in adult education and GED certification, high school, middle school, homeless ministries, medical services, and community athletic events. It cost $20,000 a day to keep the company afloat and it runs entirely on donations.
The Dream Center is truly inspiring. They run a beautiful organization and are making a real impact in Los Angeles and ultimately in the Kingdom of God.
