Relate Community Care plans to expand to include a Dream Centre, modeled after the Los Angeles Dream Center (http://www.dreamcenter.org). We will be building on the work that Relate Community Care has been doing since 2009. The Dream Centre model is a resource centre, not a homeless shelter. The goal is to educate people. There will be classes in parenting, GED, ESL, recovery, resumes and job prep. There will be medical, dental and legal resources as well as a discipleship and intern program.
The goal of the Dream Centre is to meet the immediate needs and then equip individuals and families to become self-sufficient.
The Dream Centre Vancouver will be a member of the Dream Centre Network (http://www.thedcnetwork.org)
