The South Jersey Dream Center has been serving local families with food since 2010. Since that time, we’ve gradually outgrown three facilities. When we opened our doors in National Park in January, 2015, we served 115 families in one afternoon with food.  By the end of December in 2016, we were serving nearly 200 families a month with food, clothing, and HOPE for a brighter tomorrow.  December 20, 2016 was our last Food & Clothing Distribution at the National Park Fire Hall, and we have been on the search for a new location.  WE NEED OUR OWN PERMANENT FACILITY.

Why we need a building

According to the most recent census, there are over 180,000 people in South Jersey living in poverty. However, we believe it’s possible for people to break the cycle of poverty over their lives, and for dignity to be restored to them. How can we help? By providing ASSISTANCE with food, clothing, baby and household items, AND professional, personal and spiritual DEVELOPMENT. By developing the WHOLE person. We believe every person has a God given purpose. That through His unconditional love and grace, they can realize and reach their full potential.

What Kind of Building?

We are seeking 10,000+ square feet of warehouse and office space, with plenty of parking, classrooms, and enough room to accommodate more people, more food, more clothing, and more resources. If you know of a building or would like to provide funding for a building, please contact us at nfortunato@southjerseydreamcenter.org.   We are 501c3 non-profit organization recognized by the IRS, all donations are tax-deductible.

Stay tuned for updates as we continue our search. If you are not on our email list, please subscribe today. God Bless You, Pastor Joe and Natalie Fortunato
